When Central African Republic was hit by sectarian violence three years ago, almost 100,000 people found refuge in a makeshift camp beside the airport of the capital Bangui. Today, around 28,000 are still there, but the camp poses a threat to aviation security and the government is now organising the departure of these internally displaced people. Yet returning home often means going back to neighbourhoods where they fear for their safety. FRANCE 24 reports.
