Central African Republic (CAR) faces a "dire" food crisis with over half the population suffering hunger following three years of conflict, two U.N. agencies warned Tuesday.Overall crop production in 2015 remained 54 percent below average levels prior to a March 2013 coup which plunged the impoverished former French colony into chaos, the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the World Food Program (WFP) said in a report.The conflict in CAR has led to one million people being displaced from their homes in a country of less than five million where 75 percent depend on agriculture for their living.
