The number of internally displaced people in the Central African Republic has more than doubled to 935,000 since December.

Around 500,000 have fled their homes in the capital Bangui alone - almost half the city's population.

Some 60% of those displaced are children.

The UN also warned the escalating violence was hampering efforts to reach "those in need of urgent assistance".

The conflict has pitted Christian and Muslim militias against each other.
