Central African Republic: Half the population needs aid

Thousands of people in CAR have had to flee their homes, and now half of the country is in urgent need of aid.

The United Nations is appealing to the international community to help with humanitarian efforts in the Central African Republic.

The agency says half the population requires urgent assistance.

Fighting between various armed groups plunged the country into civil conflict in 2013, and the violence is spreading fast with many groups involved in the fighting.
