UN struggles to get critical aid into CAR

With a new government in place and aid on the way, the country could start to recover from months of violence.

    The United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Navi Pillay, has issued a warning that the Central African Republic has reached a critical point.

    A new transitional government is finally in place and a huge envoy of trucks with food from the UN has arrived in Bangui after several days of travel.

    But delivering aid to the lawless and violent country's 100,000 displaced people has proved to be expensive and dangerous.

    Al Jazeera's Barnaby Phillips reports from Bangui.
