The Central African Republic is in the midst of a bloody sectarian conflict in a country where the majority Christians once lived peacefully side by side with the Muslim minority. VOA’s Bagassi Koura recently spent two weeks in the CAR, where both groups now live in fear of each other. He takes us to the western town of Bouar, where Muslims are surrounded by Christians who blame them for the violence of the Seleka. Brian Allen narrates his report.
