Worsened security leads to further displacement in Central African Republic

Date Published: 

The deteriorating security in the Central African Republic (CAR), especially in its capital city, Bangui, has triggered further displacement within the country and beyond its borders, a UN spokesman told reporters here Tuesday. "The Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) expressed its concern today about the deterioration of the security situation in Bangui since the High Commissioner's recent visit, with at least 60 people killed since March 22," said Deputy Spokesperson for the Secretary-General Farhan Haq at the daily briefing.
