Political process in CAR “moving forward”Listen /
The political process in the Central African Republic (CAR) is moving forward despite ongoing tensions between rival communities, according to the UN's top envoy in the country.
CAR has been mired in sectarian violence between Muslim and Christian militias for the past two years.
The insecurity has forced over 820,000 people to flee their homes; half have crossed into neighbouring countries as refugees.
Babacar Gaye, the head of the UN mission in the country, MINUSCA, was in New York to brief the Security Council. Cristina Silveiro asked for an update on the situation there.
