Title: AI Mission to Central African Republic - February 2014
Description: Photograph showing Donatella Rovera, Amnesty International’s senior crisis response adviser in the Central African Republic (C.A.R.).

On February 14 2014 Amnesty International’s team were in the village of Bouguere, west of the capital Bangui.

The Central African Republic (CAR) is currently experiencing a human rights and humanitarian crisis of historic proportions. Amnesty International researchers have documented that war crimes, crimes against humanity, ethnic cleansing and sectarian killings are occurring as Muslim civilians continue to come under violent attacks from anti-balaka Christian militia groups. The current crisis began in December 2012 when the predominantly Muslim armed coalition Séléka launched an armed offensive against the government of François Bozizé that culminated in his removal from power in March 2013. After gaining power, Séléka forces continued to commit human rights abuses against the majority Christian civilian population including massacres, extrajudicial executions, rape, torture, looting and massive burning and destruction of villages.
