    The United Nations has sent more troops to patrol Bangui in the Central African Republic after fighting broke out between armed men and market traders on Tuesday over a dispute about money.

    But the UN says it needs more forces.

    Youth groups have given the armed men a deadline to hand in their weapons.

    Al Jazeera's Ahmed Idris reports from Bangui, CAR.
