A satellite image reveals how M'Poko International Airport in Bangui was overtaken by refugees after violence erupted last year. Tents were set up within days, and they quickly stretched to the runway.

The Central African Republic’s civil war has displaced more than 1 million of the country’s 4.5 million residents. The European Commission’s Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection department estimates there are nearly 70 makeshift refugee camps in Bangui alone—including the M’Poko International Airport, where nearly 100,000 people have gathered for safety.
