Relief arrives in Central African Republic. This is welcome news for some of the 100,000 people displaced by the conflict now living at a makeshift refugee camp at the airport. Most have been there for more than a month after inter-religious violence killed about 1,000 people and displaced close to a fifth of the country's population. The country itself has been in turmoil since last march when mostly Muslim Seleka rebels overthrew the government. (SOUNDBITE) (French) UNIDENTIFIED DISPLACED MAN, SAYING: "It's easy to bring back peace. All we need to do is disarm the Seleka, disarm the anti-Balaka and peace will come back, we can meet around a table to discuss the problems of this country, and that will help us." Doctors without Borders has also returned to the camp after a week of reduced staffing following outbreaks of violence in the camp. A vaccination program has been launched after three children had measles. (SOUNDBITE) (English) MSF COORDINATOR IN BANGUI, LINDIS HURUM, SAYING: "It was very urgent to start because it's very contagious and this population is living in very dire hygienic conditions, the density of the camp is also impressive, and in these kind of camps there is a very high risk of epidemic.'' Leaders from the country are scheduled to meet Thursday to decide the future of the interim president who has failed to restore stability to the country.
