Only 10 days after the violence perpetrated in north eastern Nigeria and southern Chad, a new terrorist attack involving two female suicide bombers has this time struck a Nigerian camp hosting some 50,000 people, killing at least 58. We express our condolences to all those affected by this attack.
Targeting innocent people, is unacceptable. Camps have to remain a place of shelter and protection.
Dix jours seulement après les actes de violence perpétrés dans le nord-est du Nigeria et le sud du Tchad, un nouvel attentat terroriste commis par deux femmes kamikazes a cette fois frappé un camp nigérian abritant quelque 50 000 personnes et fait au moins 58 victimes. Nous exprimons nos condoléances à toutes les personnes touchées par cet attentat.
Prendre pour cible des innocents est inacceptable. Les camps doivent demeurer des lieux qui offrent abri et protection.
