Ramadan Death count: Niger 30/06/16

At least 20 people have died in inter-ethnic clashes in Niger's southeast region of Diffa, civil society groups said over the weekend.

Boko Haramhas stepped up attacks in southeastern Niger this month, raiding villages for food and cattle and attacking the town of Bosso, near Lake Chad, to steal weapons. A looting spree in villages near the lake on June 21 was the latest in a string of raids that have left more than 40 people dead.

Ramadan death toll is now at 8,133
