More than 37,000 people have been displaced in the first three months of 2015 alone, said a report by the NRC, while 426,200 people - or nearly 10 percent of the 4.6 million population - remain displaced within the country more than two years after violence erupted in the landlocked nation. "It is not a good sign that only about 20 percent of the strategic repose plan for the Central African Republic is funded," Jan Egeland, secretary general of NRC said at a conference in Brussels.

(AP Photo/Brennan Linsley)CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) — From the witness stand, Christina Blache could finally do what she had most wanted and most feared: She looked for the first time at the man who shot her, who killed her friend, who ravaged so many lives.
