DAKAR, Senegal (AP) — With bullets from nearby fighting whizzing past, Doctors Without Borders has temporarily suspended all but emergency care at the field hospital it runs inside the main refugee camp in Bangui, the capital of Central African Republic.
Lindis Hurum, the medical charity's coordinator at the camp inside the international airport, said by telephone that her staff as well as their patients had become too exposed due to continued fighting. Stray bullets have hit people inside the camp, she said. For now, Doctors Without Borders will provide only emergency care to the more than 100,000 people living under scraps of plastic and pieces of cardboard at the airport.
An AP journalist at the scene saw lines of people bearing bullet and machete wounds waiting to be treated.
