"Since December 5, 2021, an intercommunal conflict has broken out in the district of Logone Birni and has spread from December 8 in the rest of the department of Logone and Chari and in the departments of Mayo-Danay and Diamaré. This violence has caused the death of at least 44 people and injured a hundred, as well as numerous material damages as well as fires of shops, houses and markets, resulting in significant displacement of populations, "wrote OCHA.
