  • Crisis in the Central African Republic: Dispatch Two

    The Central African Republic, already one of the poorest nations in the world, is descending into chaos. In the capital city of Bangui alone, hundreds have died and nearly 200,000 people have been driven from their homes as a result of continual clashes between government forces, civilian militias, African peacekeepers, and the French military. The long-troubled nation's latest round of bloodshed began last March, when mostly Muslim Séléka rebels overthrew the president of the majority Christian nation. Many of the former rebels continued roaming the country, raping, murdering, and looting. Eventually, "anti-balaka" militias—balaka means machete or sword—were formed to fight back. Today, both Muslim and Christian civilians continue to endure an endless cycle of violent reprisals. This is...

In response, mostly Christian self-defense forces, called the anti-balaka, formed to defend CAR against Séléka attacks. Clashes grew more frequent throughout 2013 as the Séléka grew more ruthless. In December 2013, French and African troops went in to disarm the Séléka and staunch the bloodshed. The anti-balaka, seizing on a weakened Séléka, then went on the offensive. CAR had no real history of religious violence, and the current conflict is not based on any religious ideology. The fighting, however, turned increasingly sectarian in the fall of 2013, with revenge killings becoming the norm. And as the Séléka's power waned, the anti-balaka fed their need for revenge by brutalizing Muslim civilians. "Too few peacekeepers were deployed too late; the challenge of disarming the Séléka, containing the anti-balaka, and protecting the Muslim minority was underestimated," Human Rights Watch said in a recent statement. The bloodshed has not stopped. The UN is still debating whether or not to send peacekeepers. Even if a peacekeeping operation is approved, it will take six months for troops to be assembled.

Wide pan of tents in camp STORYLINE: Legislators from the Central African Republic (CAR) flew to the Chadian capital of N'Djamena on January 8th 2014 to take part in discussions on the future of the country. Among those boarding a plane at M'poko Airport in the capital Bangui was President Michel Djotodia, the rebel who seized control of CAR, only to see the desperately poor country descend into sectarian bloodshed and near anarchy. Earlier Djotodia had agreed to resign, along with his prime minister, announced Ahmat Allami, the secretary-general of the Economic Community of Central African States. Allami made the announcement following a summit in neighbouring Chad on the crisis. There has been growing pressure on Djotodia to step aside, and the resignation should help placate the armed militias who have used violence to seek his departure. However, his departure could also create an even greater power vacuum in a land that has long known coups and dictatorship, as it leaves the country in the hands of a weak transitional government. Prime Minister Nicolas Tiangaye, a longtime opposition leader prior to the March 2013 coup, is also stepping aside, Allami said. Central African Republic has long been one of the world's most unstable countries. The March 2013 coup brought heavily armed rebels to power who then proceeded to carry out atrocities against civilians. The rebels are mostly from the minority Muslim population and hail from the country's long-marginalised north, and the resentment toward their abuses transformed the conflict into one with religious undertones. *** He sought exile on January 11th in the tiny West African nation of Benin.

In March 2013, the Seleka, a coalition of predominantly Muslim-armed groups from the northeast, marched on the Central African Republic's capital Bangui and seized power. They committed mass atrocities against the population, and to the largely Christian population in the southwest, Muslims began to be associated with violence. They took up arms to form a Christian self-defense militia called the anti-balaka, and carried out revenge killings. By the end of 2013, the Central African Republic had descended into civil war. Under pressure from the international community, the Seleka were forced to give up power and retreated towards the northeast, where they regrouped. A United Nations peacekeeping mission and a French military operation were able to stem the fighting, but despite their presence, the transitional government has not been able to regain control of the country outside Bangui. With the anti-balaka controlling the southwest, and the Seleka controlling the northeast, the Central African Republic is de facto partitioned along ethno-religious lines. For those who find themselves on the wrong side of the divide, life has become hell. In this excerpt, the coordinator of the anti-balaka movement in Carnot takes VICE News to a diamond mine he oversees, which was reclaimed from Muslim owners during the recent conflict.

The present-day capital of CAR, Bangui, rests beside the River Ubangi. Places of interest include the colourful Central Market, the Boganda Museum, the Arts and Crafts School, the cathedral and the Saint Paul Mission. 2. At Bouar, in the east of the country, see burial mounds thought to be thousands of years old, studded with tanjunu (upright megaliths). About 2,500 years ago local farmers set up megaliths weighing several tons each near Bouar. The cooperation necessary to make and position these monuments suggests that they were built by large social units. 3. Boali is a town located in the Central African Republic prefecture of Ombella-M’Poko. Situated on the Mbali River, Boali is noted for its waterfalls and for the nearby hydroelectric dam. The Falls of Boali are 250 m wide and 50 m high. 4. The population of the Central African Republic has almost quadrupled since independence. In 1960, the population was 1,232,000; as of 2014, it is approximately 4,709,000. The nation is divided into over 80 ethnic groups, each with its own language. The 2 official languages are French and Sango, CAR being one of the few African countries to have an African language as their official language. 5. From the 16th to 19th century, the people of this region were ravaged by slave traders. The French occupied the region in 1894. After World War II a rebellion forced the French to grant self-government and in 1960 it became independent. 6. The three most important parks are Manovo-Gounda St Floris, known for its high concentration of hippos; Bamingui-Bangoran in the north; and Dzanga-Sangha in the southwest. The game population of these national parks is impressive. It is also possible to view gorillas in Bayanga. 7. Despite its significant mineral deposits and other resources, such as uranium reserves, oil, gold, diamonds, cobalt, lumber, and hydropower, as well as significant quantities of arable land, the Central African Republic is among the ten poorest countries in the world. As of 2014, the country had the second lowest level of human development, ranking 187th out of 188 countries.

French/Nat French expatriates caught up in the fighting in the Central African Republic spoke Friday of their terror. They were speaking in the capital Bangui as they prepared to be evacuated. The streets of Bangui remain tense, with French troops on patrol against rebel soldiers who tried to overthrow President Ange-Felix Patasse last week. Rough justice in Bangui - a suspected child looter is punished by three men who take the law into their own hands. Parts of the city had transformed into a chaotic wreck as local guards fought looters to protect shops and storage sights. No fighting was reported in the former French colony Friday, as French tanks and soldiers roamed the capital's streets. Efforts to restart peace talks between the government and rebel soldiers were under way. Hundreds of foreign business people and aid workers have fled. This French resident, preparing for evacuation, said she feared the rebels would shoot her: SOUNDBITE: At first it was very difficult because the rebels were going around the inside of the house and they led me down to the bottom of the garden. And then they told me that they themselves were fed up because the first time the French Army saw them they shot at them and they would shoot the first French people they saw. Then my friend had the good idea to say that we were part of the German community. And then they said the first French people they saw they would fight on their own ground. Apart from that there wasn't anything much. The shooting alarmed me. There was one dead body about fifty metres from the house. They were very well surrounded by the military who were right in front of my house......no, no ..it was quite a big number (of people)....if you like we've lost everything..... that's life. SUPERCAPTION: French Foreign National The mutineers, surrounded by French troops in a military base on the outskirts of the city, claimed hundreds of troops from elsewhere in the country were ready to join their battle. Opposition leader August Boukanga said President Patasse had offered to bring more groups into his multiparty government in hopes of winning over groups who might otherwise support the mutineers. Boukanga said he and other politicians had yet to decide on the offer, but Boukanga himself appeared to favor a more radical solution. Boukanga said Central Africans were losing confidence in Patasse and that the president's reliance on French military might had only contributed to the perception he was weak. Demonstrators on Thursday burned down the French cultural center to protest the intervention. France has a long history of propping up a series of often tyrannical leaders whose corruption and misrule contributed to the country's - and the region's - current problems. But some here believe that this time, France's intervention was different. Patasse's election in 1993 was seen as the start of a new democratic era. Most of the army, however, remains faithful to Gen. Andre Kolingba, who came to power in a bloodless 1981 coup and lost the 1993 vote to Patasse. Patasse has angered the army by falling behind on salary payments and, most recently, transferring control of the national armory from soldiers to his presidential guards in an attempt to establish control over the army. Bangui has been relatively calm since French soldiers, backed by Mirage fighter jets and helicopter gunships, went into action against mutineers Wednesday. The French maintain about 1,300 soldiers in their former colony, and Bangui serves as a major base for French military operations in francophone Africa.

Start from the beginning and watch part 1 here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JwJEtTMUkzM&list=PLw613M86o5o49tFIS5fmyazINYSkbzV6_&src_vid=Em7w7WSwaMk&feature=iv&annotation_id=annotation_2360488599 The Central African Republic's capital of Bangui has seen its Muslim population drop from 130,000 to under 1000 over the past few months. Over the past year, thousands across CAR have been killed and nearly a million have been displaced. The United Nations recently stated that the entire Western half of the country has now been cleansed of Muslims. CAR has never fully recovered from France's colonial rule, and it has only known ten years of a civilian government - from 1993 to 2003 - since achieving independence in 1960. Coup after coup, often with French military involvement, has led many to refer to the country as a phantom state. The current conflict has now completely erased the rule of law and order, and left the UN and international community looking confused and impotent. In March 2013, the Séléka, a mostly Muslim rebel alliance, rose up and overthrew the corrupt government of François Bozizé, while bringing terror and chaos across the country - pillaging, killing and raping with impunity. In response, mostly Christian self-defense forces, called the anti-balaka, formed to defend CAR against Séléka attacks. Clashes grew more frequent throughout 2013 as the Séléka grew more ruthless. In December 2013, French and African troops went in to disarm the Séléka and staunch the bloodshed. The anti-balaka, seizing on a weakened Séléka, then went on the offensive. CAR had no real history of religious violence, and the current conflict is not based on any religious ideology. The fighting, however, turned increasingly sectarian in the fall of 2013, with revenge killings becoming the norm. And as the Séléka's power waned, the anti-balaka fed their need for revenge by brutalizing Muslim civilians. "Too few peacekeepers were deployed too late; the challenge of disarming the Séléka, containing the anti-balaka, and protecting the Muslim minority was underestimated," Human Rights Watch said in a recent statement. The bloodshed has not stopped. The UN is still debating whether or not to send peacekeepers. Even if a peacekeeping operation is approved, it will take six months for troops to be assembled.
