US ambassador calls for end to CAR violence

Residents remain fearful and uncertain amid reports of more fighting in the Central African Republic capital of Bangui.

    As a new peacekeeping force attempts to stabilise the Central African Republic, which has been riven by sectarian violence, the US ambassador to the United Nations has called for an immediate cessation of hostilities.

    On a visit to the country's capital, Ambassador Samantha Power did not have to look far to witness the scale of displacement.

    Al Jazeera's Andrew Simmons reports from Bangui.
