In this Saturday, Feb, 22. 2014 photo released by National Emergency Management Agency, (NEMA), displaced people receive relief aid, in Maiduguri, Nigeria. Living in fear and hunger, some quarter million Nigerians forced from their homes this year by an Islamic uprising are surviving in the bush, overcrowded with relatives and friends or in squalid camps where 500 share one latrine, a new report says. The National Emergency Management Agency describes dire conditions for people already traumatized by the loss of loved ones, belongings, homes and livelihoods in northeast Nigeria. In all, more than 3 million people — a third of the population — are suffering from the insurgency that has killed thousands and driven tens of thousands of farmers from their land, the agency said in the first report on the humanitarian plight created by the insurgency in Nigeria. It was made available to The Associated Press on Thursday, March 27, 2014. (AP Photo/ NEMA)
