Women fleeing Burkina Faso violence face sexual assault

Displaced women gather to collect water Monday Feb. 8, 2021 in the Kaya camp,100 kms North of Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. A report by humanitarian groups says sexual assault cases in one region increased five-fold during a three-month period last year. Aid groups say jihadists are not the only perpetrators and that there has been a sharp increase in domestic violence and exploitation of displaced women by host communities.
