  • International NGOs working in Kabo (North of the country) have suspended their activities due to insecurity and are relocating their staff. This re-location follows the killing of a staff member of an international NGO on 7 December (the fourteenth humanitarian worker killed in CAR since the beginning of 2017) and the robbery of a compound of another INGO the following night.

  • The suspension of humanitarian activities in Kabo will have a negative impact on about 100 000 people - both IDPs and local population - who had been receiving international assistance.

  • Overall, so far this year, some 350 humanitarian workers have had to be (temporarily) relocated for security reasons in CAR. This is double the number of 2016.
