The development of what has been described as "hate language" in the Central African Republic is dangerous because it is usually a precursor to genocide.

This warning has come from the head of a team of experts that is investigating allegations of violations of international humanitarian law in the Central African Republic.

Violence continues between Christian and Muslim communities in the country where thousands of people are believed to have been killed and tens of thousands of others have fled their homes.

Bernard Muna, the Chairperson of the International Commission of Inquiry on the Central African Republic, says violence is continuing.

UN Radio's Jean-Pierre Ramazzani sat down with Mr. Muna in the capital Bangui and first asked him about the mandate of his Commission.
