Niger: 10,000 refugees arrived in Diffa region from Damasack, Nigeria. Most were fleeing forced recruitment by Boko Haram, and some unaccompanied children were reported. More than 105,000 people have arrived from Nigeria since May 2013, and the rate is increasing. The newly displaced are in a critical situation, and Diffa faces serious gaps in service provision.
Kenya: After Al Shabaab claimed a second attack in Mandera, significant numbers of people began leaving the area. Most are health workers, teachers, and civil servants, which will have an impact on access to basic services in Mandera.
