The UN Human Rights office is warning of the potential for new conflict in the Central African Republic, where a rebel coalition known as Séléka seized power in March of this year.

The concern follows recent violence, including deadly clashes last month between ex-Séléka forces and self-defence militias in the town of Bouar, which is close to the country's border with Cameroon.

The militias had attacked and occupied the town which led to the fighting.
