Summary: 

The United Nations has said it was running out of food for a growing number of homeless people in Central African Republic, with spreading unrest hobbling distribution efforts. The UN's World Food Programme (WFP) said on Monday that 38 trucks carrying rice are stuck at the Cameroon border and drivers were refusing to cross the frontier due to the threat of attacks. "WFP cereal stocks are close to being exhausted and pulses too will soon run out," said a WFP statement.
