Non-state groups responsible for 60,000 deaths in Sub-Saharan Africa
In the past decade, armed groups have been responsible for 60,000 deaths in Sub-Saharan Africa alone, according to the head of UN peacekeeping operations.
Herve Ladsous made the remarks at an event to mark the tenth anniversary of community violence reduction (CVR) programmes in peacekeeping.
These community-driven programmes aim to combat insecurity and include mediation and development of alternative livelihoods for youth involved in armed violence.
