More than ten thousand people displaced in Niger
9 January 2021
ِThe UNOCHA says 10,600 people have been displaced following the attacks on two villages in Niger's Tillaberi region earlier this month. The Tillaberi region has been frequently targeted by terrorist groups based in Mali since 2017, with a state of emergency declared in the area. Niger, Burkina Faso and Mali in the Sahel are at the epicenter of one of the world's fastest-growing displacement and security crises.
