A team from the UN refugee agency has reached thousands of people who fled violence in the Central African Republic (CAR) to a remote area of south-eastern Chad. The UN has started registering the new arrivals and providing emergency aid, as some 6,000 civilians, mostly women and children from CAR's Rounga and Sara tribes, have taken refuge in Chad since December to escape rebel attacks and clashes between rebels and Government forces. Most of these refugees are sheltering in the village of Daha, roughly one kilometer from the Chad-CAR border, UNHCR spokesperson Ron Redmond said. (UN News Service)
