C.A.R Crisis

RTR3IEJ1
Behind bars in Central African Republic - 24 Mar 2014
Extreme violence has shaken Central African Republic for more than a year and U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has described the situation in the country as a “state of anarchy”.

The central prison in the capital Bangui has been severely affected by the crisis, but it is functioning nevertheless. Reuters photographer Siegfried Modola photographed some of the jail’s inmates.
