Children face malnutrition in CAR

Aid groups fear thousands are not getting enough food, as fighting between rival militias disrupts relief efforts.

    Health workers in the Central African Republic have said that children are dying everyday because of malnutrition.

    Fighting between mainly Christian Anti-Balaka and predominantly Muslim Seleka fighters has disrupted the supply of food across the country.

    In Boda, a town near the capital Bangui, the few supplies that do get through are unaffordable to those most in need.
