Situation in Central African Republic worseningListen /
The situation in the Central African Republic is worsening as fighting resumes between former Séléka rebels and militias.
The warning comes from the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights in Geneva.
Cecile Pouilly, Spokesperson for the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights says a number of former Séléka and Muslim civilians are reported to be fleeing towards the north of the country.
"Since about a week ago, clashes have restarted between anti-Séléka and ex-Séléka supported by armed Muslim civilians in several Bangui neighbourhoods. And after those clashes mobs have been looting Muslim shops, homes, as well as mosques. So there has been a number of ex-Séléka and Muslim civilians who decided to flee towards the north of the country." (25")
About one million people have been displaced in the Central African Republic since the conflict erupted in December 2012 when Séléka rebels attacked government forces.
