(IRIN) – Tens of thousands of children in northern Cameroon, including many refugees from neighbouring Nigeria, are out of school because of cross-border attacks by Boko Haram. “The government and aid agencies are grappling with a complex emergency situation,” said Middjiyawa Bakari, governor of Cameroon’s Far North Region. “Getting enough classrooms, teachers and various forms of assistance to the internally displaced children and refugees remains critical,” he said.
