Overview of the situation

The humanitarian situation in the country and in the Mopti region in particular has deteriorated as a consequence of the combats. Population displacements have been reported by several sources, adding onto the first wave of displacements that started in April 2012 as a result of the coup in March 2012 and the subsequent occupation of the north by the armed groups. Before the combats started IDPs were estimated at around 198,500. This figure is being reviewed to take into account the displacement occurred over the last days. A new figures update will be shared as soon as possible.
