    The UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has visited one of the regions worst affected by the increasing violence in Central African Republic.

    Almost 2,000 people are currently sheltering in a refugee camp in the town of Bangassou, after a dramatic rise in conflict between armed groups in recent months.

    Safety and security seem to depend on UN peacekeepers, but some of the peacekeepers themselves have been accused of sexually abusing those they have been sent to protect.

    Al Jazeera's Nicolas Haque reports from Bangassou.
