In our show "Correspondence", we explore how the world is coping with the twists and turns of 2021, amid the consequences of Covid-19 and beyond. FRANCE 24 brings you a selection of original reports from our correspondents and teams around the globe.


Our reports:

>> In Ethiopia, tens of thousands of people have been forced to flee the Benishangul-Gumuz region after ethnic massacres in the area. At a refugee camp in the town of Chagni, survivors recount their harrowing ordeals.

>> In Iraq, a group of forensic experts are working to identify the bodies of Yazidi victims exhumed from mass graves left by the Islamic State group. Warning: this report contains graphic footage.

>> In Italy, Romans can now meet for a meal on a terrace or enjoy a visit to one of the capital's nearly empty museums after some Covid-19 restrictions were lifted.

>> And in Nicaragua, despite the second wave of coronavirus, residents of the southern town of Diriamba gathered to celebrate the San Sebastian festival with little or no social distancing.
