People returning home in Mali need relief aid

2 May 2014

Thousands of people in Mali who were displaced by a crisis that started with a coup in March 2012 are now returning home.

The International Organization for Migration (IOM) says it follows an improvement in the security situation in the north of the country.

Many of the people returning home are in need of assistance but humanitarian agencies are facing challenges because of a lack of funds.
