Around 150,000 children displaced by the conflict in Mali do not have birth certificates and are at risk of exclusion and deprivation of rights because they cannot prove their identity, the Norwegian Council for Refugees has warned.

“Thousands of children are excluded from society when they should be in school,” said Maclean Natugasha, director of the Norwegian Council for Refugees (NRC) for Mali, in a statement released by the Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) to AFP.
