19 January 2017

At least 120 people wounded, 52 killed following the bombing by Nigerian Army in an internally displaced persons camp in Rann, Nigeria on 17 January 2017.

“This large-scale attack on vulnerable people who have already fled from extreme violence is shocking and unacceptable,” says Dr Jean-Clément Cabrol, MSF Director of Operations.

“The safety of civilians must be respected. We are urgently calling on all parties to ensure the facilitation of medical evacuations by air or road for survivors who are in need of emergency care.”
