10/22/2013 Central African Republic (Catholic World News) – On the eve of testimony at the United Nations, the Central African Republic’s leading prelate said that the nation is a “tinderbox.”
Members of Séléka, an Islamist rebel movement, seized power in the nation in March. The number of Séléka militants, according Archbishop Dieudonné Nzapalainga, has soared from 3,500 to 25,000 since the takeover.
“The number of abuses cannot be counted,” he said, according to Caritas Internationalis, the Church’s confederation of relief and development agencies. “People have been killed, homes burned, and women raped by the rebels.”
