CAR, Chad refugees spill into east Cameroon-UNHCR

Dec 7 2006 Reuters report by Tansa Musa. Excerpt:
Up to 30,000 refugees fleeing conflicts in Chad and the Central African Republic have crossed into east Cameroon prompting the United Nations Refugee Agency to open an office there to help them, a UNHCR official said on Thursday.

Rebellions in east Chad and north Central African Republic, linked to the long-running conflict in Sudan's Darfur region and combined with local bandit activity, have led refugees to flee across the frontiers of these interlocking African states.
