Central African Republic

    The UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) is voicing concern that security in the strife-torn north of the Central African Republic (CAR) has started to worsen, with fresh fighting between government forces and rebels uprooting thousands more civilians in the deeply impoverished country. Two separate attacks took place last week between the military and rebels, and UNICEF warned that the number of internally displaced persons (IDPs) – already estimated to be more than 200,000 – could swell even higher because of the recent security incidents.
