Doctors Without Borders (MSF) said on that Friday it was providing emergency help after 33 children died in a camp housing people that have been displaced by the Boko Haram insurgency in northeast Nigeria.

MSF said that the children died between August 2nd and 15th in Bama, once the second-largest town in the ravaged state of Borno but now a humanitarian hub.

“They are dying due to malnutrition,” said Lisa Veran, MSF spokesperson in Paris. Children are arriving to the camp in “critical condition” and their health is worsening in the absence of proper medical care, MSF said in a press statement.

Thousands of people are being sent back to Bama by the Nigerian government, which claims that Boko Haram Islamists are no longer a potent threat. Since April, more than 10,000 people have returned, putting pressure on a facility that hit maximum capacity of 25,000 at the end of July, MSF said.

The “assistance provided is not keeping up with the number of IDPs (internally displaced people),” it warned. In June, President Muhammadu Buhari, who is seeking re-election next year, said that Nigeria’s remote northeast is in a “post-conflict stabilisation phase”.

But a recent surge in attacks has highlighted the deteriorating security situation there. Soldiers have started protesting following a series of bloody Boko Haram attacks on military bases in recent months.

    but looks great in Opera. Do you have any solutions to help fix this issue?

  18. I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the
    way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or
    two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
