Violence in CAR escalates outside capital

Unrest between rival militias has spread to Bossangoa, 300 km north of the capital Bangui.

    Foreign forces are trying to keep an unsteady peace between rival militias in the Central African Republic.

    Violence has seen thousands of people flee their homes in the capital Bangui. They're now living in camps, under the protection of French and African Union soldiers.

    But the unrest is not limited to the capital.

    Al Jazeera's Andrew Simmons reports from Bossangoa, 300 km north of Bangui.
