Crises in Libya, Mali and Nigeria are "destabilizing the broader Sahel region of Africa", according to the UN Secretary-General's monthly strategy report on the region.

The report focuses on the five "core" Sahel countries of Burkina Faso, Chad, Mauritania, Mali and Nigeria.

The Secretary-General's recently appointed Envoy for the Sahel, Hiroute Guebre Sellassie, presented the findings to the Security Council on Thursday.
