Cholera fears as humanitarian crisis looms for C. Africa capital

December 12, 2013

"Aid workers warned Thursday of a looming humanitarian crisis in the Central African capital as tens of thousands of residents desperate for protection slept rough near a French army base in Bangui...In Bossangoa in the northwest of the country, tens of thousands also fled to camps, fearing a repeat of violence that has largely pitted Christians against Muslims. NGO Action Against Hunger said one camp it operates only had one water source, adding it was trying to take care of the rubbish and wastewater as best it could, and building latrines."
