UN Aid Appeal For Thousands Displaced By Burkina Faso Attack | General News

The United Nations’ refugee agency says thousands of villagers in Burkina Faso urgently need water, sanitation, shelter and medical care having fled their homes after Saturday’s massacre by Islamist militants.

A UNHCR spokesman praised the generosity of people in other villages in welcoming and sharing what little they had with more than 3,300 who fled Solhan.

He said the agency was working with the Burkinabè government to build shelters and help the displaced – but more resources were needed.

Up to 160 people were killed in the attack on Solhan – the UN says nearly 40 are seriously injured and in hospital.

The UNHCR says it’s received only a quarter of the money it needs for its aid response to the current violence in the central Sahel.
