Human Rights in Comoros

Human Rights Concerns

Comoros is the third-smallest African nation by area. However, it is the sixth-smallest African nation by population — although it has one of the highest population densities in Africa.

Scores of people killed and many others were wounded in Anjouan September 3-5, 1997 during clashes between government troops and armed secessionist groups. Civilians were reportedly shot dead indiscriminately. Government troops injured in the clashes were allegedly evacuated for medical treatment, while wounded civilians were not evacuated or given medical assistance.
