Central African Republic's street children - 09 Jul 07

The Central African Republic is one of the least developed countries in the world and one of the least stable since it gained independence from France in 1960. The country has been wracked by internal conflict and a succession of coups. It's the sixth poorest nation in the world despite its vast unexploited mineral wealth of gold, diamonds and uranium. Amid the poverty, more than 3-thousand children sleep on the streets of the capital Bangui, every night. Al Jazeera's Andrew Simmons reports from the city streets.
