    The United Nations and government forces in the Central African Republic (CAR) have declared a notorious neighbourhood in the capital Bangui a weapons-free zone.

    The area, known as PK5, recently saw days of fighting between a militia and local traders.

    The armed group was given a deadline to disarm, which has now passed.
