Victims of human rights violations and abuses in the Central African Republic (CAR) are calling for "justice to be done", a senior UN official with the peacekeeping mission in the country (MINUSCA) has said.

A new report by the Mission detailing some of the violations carried out in the West African nation from June to March this year was released on Wednesday.

It's estimated that during this period, 1, 301 cases were recorded affecting at least 2,473 victims throughout CAR.

The types of abuses range from arbitrary killings, to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment and sexual violence.

Nestor Ndikumana sat down with Roosevel Louis, the Deputy Director of MINUSCA's human rights division, to learn more.
