The Central African Republic has been plunged into the bloodiest crossroads of its short history. In March 2013, rebels from mainly Muslim group called Seleka, overthrew the state, unleashing nine months of anarchy.
Militias called anti-balaka, whose ranks consist of Christians and animists, then launched unprecedented attacks against Muslims for their perceived support of the Seleka. Thousands were killed, triggering a wave of displacement. International forces have been struggling to stop the violence.
