The security situation in the Central African Republic continues to deteriorate and threatens to degenerate into lawlessness.

The crisis started in December 2012 when rebels attacked government forces but has become an inter-religious conflict.

The former rebels who were known as Séléka and Muslim civilians have been attacked by Christian militias known as anti-Balaka.

Derrick Mbatha reports.
