    In the Democractic Republic of Congo, the Ebola epidemic continues in the northeastern part of the country, but has moved into the Ituri region as cases in North Kivu are slowly starting to decrease.

    30/10/2019 Duración: 07min

    While the focus on Ebola,  the deadly hemorrhagic virus is typically health, food is an important part of the process, whether keeping up your strength or preventing the spread of the disease by receiving food from the World Food Programme's Ebola response in North Kivu, and now, Ituri regions. And food can also help with stigma, too, for Ebola survivors. RFI's Laura Angela Bagnetto was in Beni and Butembo in the DRC to find out how the food distributions worked:

  • International report - Cameroons identity crisis

    International report - Cameroon's identity crisis

    30/10/2019 Duración: 07min

    In Cameroon in late 2016, English-speaking lawyers and teachers peacefully protested against the use of French in the nation's courts and schools. Their demands were met with a crackdown by security forces. The following year, some disgruntled English-speakers took up arms against the state, to fight against what they describe as years of marginalisation by a central government dominated by French speakers. On 1 October 2017, they symbolically declared the independence of Ambazonia. Since then, more than half a million people have fled their homes and about 3,000 have died as a result of the violence, according to the International Crisis Group. The displaced are in urgent need of humanitarian assistance. Some of them have been sharing their stories with our correspondent Alphonse Tebeck, RFI's correspondent in Bamenda, the largest city in English-speaking Cameroon.

    International report - Fear and panic in Assam as millions left off national register

    18/10/2019 Duración: 06min

    India's only foreigner detention center which will house illegal immigrants in the north-eastern state of Assam will be operational early next year.  Nearly two million people in the state were excluded when Delhi published the state’s final National Register of Citizens in August. Those excluded from the register will have to appeal to prove they are citizens. The UN and other international rights groups have expressed concern that many could be rendered stateless. The citizenship list is part of a drive to detect illegal immigrants in Assam; a system that might be applied across the country at a later date. In this last report from a two-part series Murali Krishnan looks at the fear and panic that dominate many areas of Assam’s population whose names have been excluded.

    18/10/2019 Duración: 07min

    Nearly two million people from the north-eastern Indian state of Assam may lose their citizenship after the government brought out the final version of the National Register of Citizens or NRC last month.

The register was primarily targeted at people whom authorities describe as illegal immigrants from Bangladesh, which shares a border with Assam. Murali Krishnan traveled to Assam to investigate in a first of a two-part series.
