The UN’s children fund Unicef said, the crisis the latest to hit the poverty-stricken, strife-torn central African country is unfolding in the vast region of Kasai. An 18-month-long combination of violence, mass displacement and slumping agricultural output are having a devastating impact on the very young, it said.

The DRC a country nearly twice the area of Britain, France and Germany combined has a long history of violence, especially in its volatile east.

UNICEF, which has been intervening in the Kasai crisis since January, also said the region’s health infrastructure had been devastated.
