Journalists work in the newsroom of the national radio headquarters in Bangui, Central African Republic, November 28, 2013. Last week, civil servants in the volatile state were paid for the first time in four months. They were previously paid in August, when the last of a loan from Congo Republic ran out. An average salary amounts to roughly $80 per month, barely enough to get by even if paid on schedule. REUTERS/Joe Penney more
