"Insecurity has expanded, the humanitarian situation has deteriorated, more children do not go to school, and the country has been affected by an endless cycle of instability," said the official.

The UN warned that more than 1,800,000 people are expected to need food assistance in 2022 compared to 1,300,000 million in 2021, representing the highest level of food insecurity recorded in Mali since 2014.

The future of the country is in danger, valued the designated El-Ghassim Wane, because more than half a million infants have been affected by the closure of schools.

The special representative also reported on the ongoing clash between the Economic Community of West African States (Cedeao) and the military-controlled transition leaders of Mali.

"A prolonged stagnation will make it much more difficult to find a consensual solution, while increasing the difficulties for the population and further weaken the capacity of the state," said the UN delegate.

On December 3, 32 civilians, including 26 women and children, were killed near Songho when they attacked a bus. According to the international organization, the number of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) increased from 216,000 to more than 400,000.
