Refugees From CAR Find No Relief In Congo Camps

IRIN: “People are dying every day” — CAR refugees fleeing war suffer in Congo
“The camps of ramshackle mud-brick shelters line the banks of the River Ubangi in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Inside, refugees from Central African Republic are suffering: from heat, from hunger, from disease. … After four years of conflict, refugees are once again pouring across CAR’s borders. In five months, 64,000 have fled from towns and villages in southeast CAR to isolated river communities in neighboring Congo…” (Kleinfeld, 10/30).
