(New York, 19 September 2017): The Humanitarian Coordinator in Nigeria, Mr. Edward Kallon, strongly condemns the deadly attacks targeting innocent civilians in Konduga, Banki and Ngala areas of Borno State in conflict-struck north-east Nigeria.
Four attacks in recent weeks, three of which were carried out by suicide bombers, have claimed the lives of over 45 civilians and injured countless others, and are indicative of a surge in the brutal violence triggered by a regionalized conflict that is now in its eighth year.
Mauritania hosts over 2,000 urban refugees and asylum seekers and almost 52,000 Malian refugees in Mbera, a camp established in 2012, in the arid south-east region close to the Malian border.
Despite the conclusion of a peace agreement in 2015, largescale returns of Malian refugees are not expected due to persistent violence in northern Mali.
The protracted displacement situation in Mbera exercises a considerable pressure on already limited local resources in the Bassikounou region.

16,000 IDPs FLEE FRESH CLASHES IN BASSE-KOTTO
Recent clashes between armed groups in two localities in the southern Basse-Kotto prefecture have forced around 16,000 displaced people to flee for safety in the neighbouring Ouaka prefecture. They were initially uprooted from their homes in May. The displacement has left them in desperate need of emergency assistance, especially shelter, basic household items, food, water, hygiene and protection.
16 000 PDI FUIENT DE NOUVEAUX AFFRONTEMENTS EN BASSE-KOTTO
Les affrontements récents entre groupes armés dans deux localités de la préfecture de la BasseKotto, au sud, ont obligé environ 16 000 personnes déplacées à trouver refuge dans la préfecture voisine de la Ouaka. Elles avaient déjà fui leurs foyers en mai. Ce nouveau déplacement les a laissé dans le besoin désespéré d‘une aide d'urgence, en particulier d’abris, articles ménagers de base, nourriture, eau, hygiène et protection.
Violent conflicts between nomadic herders from northern Nigeria and sedentary agrarian communities in the central and southern zones have escalated in recent years and are spreading southward, threatening the country’s security and stability.
As of 18 September, the number of suspected cholera cases has surpassed 2,000, with 44 deaths reported. The case fatality rate is more than double the emergency threshold of 1%.
The majority of cases are in three main areas in Borno state: 1,177 in the Muna corridor, 570 in Dikwa, and over 338 in Monguno. The areas affected have high levels of IDPs and their already limited health capacity will be further strained.
Geneva – IOM, the UN Migration Agency, reports that 131,772 migrants and refugees entered Europe by sea in 2017 through 17 September, with over 75 per cent arriving in Italy and the remainder divided between Greece, Cyprus and Spain. This compares with 300,076 arrivals across the region through 17 September 2016.
