Central African Republic: a country in distress

Tensions are rife in the Central African Republic, 3 months after former President Bozizé was ousted by a coup led by a rebel coalition known as the Séléka. For the country’s new president – Michel Djotodia, one of the leaders of the Séléka rebel coalition - the situation is "back to normal" and the Central African Republic is stabilised. In reality, with Séléka militias on the loose, violence and looting remains widespread in the capital Bangui and throughout the provinces.
