Humanitarians care calling for unimpeded access to thousands of displaced people affected by deadly clashes between armed groups in two provinces in the Central African Republic (CAR).

The renewed violence in Ouaka and Haute Kotto provinces has also generated gross violations of international humanitarian law, and the warring parties are being urged to protect civilians and fulfil their human rights obligations.

The UN humanitarian affairs office, OCHA, reports some 45,000 internally displaced people, or IDPs, are currently sheltering in Bambari, capital of Ouaka province.

Cristina Silveiro spoke to OCHA's Joseph Inganji.
