Violence in CAR crisis continues

Thousands are trapped in Yaloke in the Central African Republic, according to Amnesty International.

    Humanitarian workers are concerned about the fate of thousands of people in the Northwest of the Central African Republic. The ongoing battle between rival militias is going on across the country, including the capital Bangui.

    Amnesty International has told Al Jazeera that thousands of people are trapped in the town of Yaloke. More have been forced from their homes, and are travelling in unprotected convoys.
