song Description:

The UN Refugee Agency, UNHCR, has alarmed at the spike in inter-communal violence in central Mali which over the past weeks has driven some 3,000 people into neighbouring Burkina Faso. Dozens of people have been killed in clashes between the Dogon and Peul communities since February, and homes and other property have been destroyed, mainly in the Koro area of central Mali’s Mopti region. According to the UNHCR, the new arrivals add to some 24,000 Malian refugees who have found refuge in Burkina Faso since the start of the Mali conflict in 2012. Marlies Cardoen, is a spokeswoman for UNHCR. She spoke to WADR on the line from Ouagadougou.
