The Central African Republic is at a critical juncture, the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay warned on Monday.

The country has been plagued by an ongoing crisis that started when rebels attacked government forces in December 2012….And the fighting is continuing.

The conflict has divided the Muslim against Christian communities. One of the Muslim groups is called the Séléka.

Patrick Maigua spoke to Cécile Pouilly from the human rights office to get an update on the situation.
