Latest update : 2013-12-31

Central African Republic: Is Intervention Making Things Worse?

Are foreign troops, especially those from France and Chad, in fact worsening the sectarian violence raking the Central African Republic? The Muslim community and the ex-Seleka rebels are accusing Paris of backing the Christian majority. And in a worrying echo, Christian leaders are accusing neighbouring Chad of siding with the Muslim minority. So is the international intervention in this troubled land making things worse?

Produced and prepared by Anelise Borges and Haxie Meyers-Belkin
