Relief arrives in Central African Republic. This is welcome news for some of the 100,000 people displaced by the conflict now living at a makeshift refugee camp at the airport. Most have been there for more than a month after inter-religious violence killed about 1,000 people and displaced close to a fifth of the country's population.

A vaccination program has been launched after three children had measles. (SOUNDBITE) (English) MS
