2013 Central African Republic

In 2013 a Muslim rebel group known as Seleka came together to go against President Francois Boziz’s regime in Central African Republic. They attacked civilians as they overthrew the government. The Anti-Balaka, a mostly Christian militia, fought back against the Seleka and targeted Muslim civilians. There has been a cycle of revenge attacks that have led to a humanitarian crisis in the country. Schools, medical facilities, and villages have been destroyed leaving people with little access to food, water, and shelter.
