More than 4,500 refugees from the northern Central African Republic (CAR), fearing attacks from armed groups and fighting between Government forces and rebels, have recently arrived in south-eastern Chad, the United Nations refugee agency said. A first group of about 200 local government workers left their villages after rebels attacked in late December, according to a spokesperson for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), who relayed information gathered Feb. 4 by a joint UN humanitarian mission to the Chadian village of Daha near the CAR border.
