Children in need of aid in central Sahel double to 10mn

Ten million children in Burkina Faso, Mali and Niger are in dire need of humanitarian assistance - twice as many as in 2020 - due to worsening violence, the United Nations said Friday.

"Children are increasingly caught up in the armed conflict, as victims of intensifying military clashes, or targeted by non-state armed groups," Marie-Pierre Poirier, UNICEF's regional director for west and central Africa, said in a statement.
