C.A.R Crisis

RTR3FPJ0
In a Spiral of Violence - 25 Feb 2014
Central African Republic was plunged into chaos after mainly Muslim Seleka rebels seized power last March, brutalising the country’s majority-Christian population.

Their actions triggered bloody attacks against Muslims by predominantly Christian militias, and the inter-religious violence has only worsened since Seleka leader Michel Djotodia resigned as president.
