According to a report by the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA), the use of IEDs has forced nearly 2,559 people to flee.
The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs has published the situation report for the North-West and South-West regions of Cameroon. According to the organization, "at least 2,559 people were forced to flee in October due to clashes between non-state armed groups and state security forces, and the increased use of improvised explosive devices (IEDs). The most affected divisions are Menchum, Boyo, Bui and Donga-Mantung in the northwest, and Manyu and Ndian in the southwest," the report said.
According to UNOCHA, "October saw a slow resumption of humanitarian activities in the North-West and South-West (NoSo) regions following the suspension caused by the long lockdown imposed by non-state armed groups in September. The security situation in the NWSW has remained volatile with a sustained level of attacks on education, including teachers, students, school premises and property with at least one teacher killed." In these two English-speaking regions, nearly 700,000 children are affected by the closure of schools, the same UN organization informed.
