Tensions mounted in Bangui again last weekend when demonstrations by armed men blocked roads, bringing traffic in the capital to a standstill.

The events are part of a rising wave of violence and looting which has gone on unabated and unchecked since October. Many people have fled for a second time to camps for displaced people, even though the lack of aid there has made living conditions very tough.

Beirut

Palestinian refugees arriving in Lebanon from Syria are facing harsh winter conditions in the northern Bekaa Valley, where whole families have little or no means of survival. Today, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) in Lebanon signed an agreement that will ensure that ICRC winter assistance reaches the Palestine refugees living in the coldest areas of Lebanon. This is the first agreement of its kind between the two organizations.

In practice, it is sometimes difficult to draw the line between situations governed by the conduct of hostilities paradigm, derived from international humanitarian law, and those governed by the law enforcement paradigm, mainly derived from human rights law.
