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

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.

Charity workers in the city say the situation has deteriorated over the past few days.
