Recent reports indicate that a majority of the rebels ravaging Christians in the Central African Republic (CAR) are composed of foreign Islamists. These Muslim fighters reportedly are working at the behest of the current president of the CAR, Michel Am-Nondokro Djotodia. Former president François Bozizé, was deposed in March by this rebel coalition, known as Seleka, which installed president Djotodia. Djotodia is the first Muslim leader of the majority Christian nation. During the rebellion, allegations surfaced that many of the rebel fighters were in fact Sudanese and Chadian Islamist militants. These new reports tend to confirm those allegations, and have given greater weight to concerns that the militants receive some measure of funding and guidance from the same sources that funded Malian, Tunisian, and Libyan revolts, namely: Al Qaeda.
