30,000 Central African Republic refugees believed to have crossed into DCR

Images have been released by the UNHCR showing the living conditions of refugees who have fled the conflict in the Central African Republic to camps in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The United Nations believes that 30,000 people have taken shelter in the DRC since January.

The UN High Commissioner for Refugees Antonio Guterres has travelled to the region to visit the camps.

The UN has said that helping the refugees has been a challenge due to the difficulties in reaching the border between the DRC and the Central African Republic. Another camp is expected to be opened for 10,000 people.
