CAR in crisis as aid fails to materialise

There is a growing crisis in the capital Bangui, where only one week of aid supplies remain.

    The UN's children's agency is urging the international community to help prevent a humanitarian disaster in the Central African Republic. 

    The UN humanitarian office says it has received just $60m of the $551m it appealed for. 

    Aid is needed to help up to one million displaced people, about a quarter of the population.
