Mali-Burkina Faso border clash

Farmers versus herders among the border region between Mali and Burkina-Faso:

“…the dispute originated from an agreement between the two west African nations, which allows Burkina herders to take their livestock to camps in Mali where there was available pasture land.”

“Fulani herders were allowed into Mali through special corridors. However, Mali has descended into chaos since a…military coup”

“The Dogons, who have always opposed the opening of these corridors, taking advantage of the crisis in Mali, have decided to solve the problem by attacking Fulani settlements”
