UNHCR says hundreds of people trapped in Yaloke town risk death if they are not evacuated to safety urgently.

Dalia al-Achi, public information officer for the UNHCR in Bangui, told Al Jazeera on Tuesday that the group, who had initially fled a series of towns in February 2014, were growing desperate as living conditions worsened.
