The UN children's charity, Unicef, has warned that the Central African Republic is heading for a humanitarian disaster, as civilians suffer amid ongoing ethnic violence.

Unicef has reported cases of measles at the airport in the capital, Bangui, where about 100,000 displaced people have sought refuge from clashes between rival militias.

The BBC's Paul Wood and cameraman Fred Scott sent this report from Bangui.
