Cameroonians Displaced by Separatist Conflict Need Support


Ongoing clashes between Cameroon's separatists and the military have affected nearly two million people, leaving thousands dead and hundreds of thousands displaced. Many of the displaced have found refuge in the neighboring town of Douala, where they live crowded into small rooms and struggling to get by. Moki Edwin Kindzeka has this report by Anne Nzouankeu from Douala.

Covid-19 has brought Yemen's health system to a complete collapse according to the medical charity Doctors Without Borders.

The number of deaths in the country — which was already wracked by civil war — is almost impossible to determine.

Yemen was already facing the world's worst humanitarian crisis — after years of conflict between its Houthi rebels and the internationally-recognised government.

The rebels are backed by Iran while a coalition led by Saudi Arabia and supported by the United States and the UK backs the government.
