Boko Haram violence: Making ends meet in Niger's Diffa region

Lake Chad communities are struggling to survive after increased Boko Haram attacks in Niger.

    A rise in attacks by the armed group Boko Haram has forced tens of thousands of people from their homes in Niger over the past few years.

    The United Nations' refugee agency has warned of a growing humanitarian crisis. And people in one community by Lake Chad in the Diffa region are struggling to survive.
