Central African Republic by Pierre Terdjman – The Seleka militia took over in March 2013, and perpetrated massive violations of human rights – massacres, rape, torture and executions, and burning villages to the ground. Nearly one fifth of the population has had to flee and they are now living in appalling conditions in the bush and IDP camps. In September, the predominantly Christian anti- Balaka militia embarked on a wave of reprisals against the Muslims with massacres, summary executions and looting; the sides had changed, but the violence continued. Terrified Muslims fled north-west, to towns such as Bossangoa and Bouca which are traditionally Muslim. Of the 100 000 Muslims that lived in Bangui, only one thousand are left; the others have fled across the border. Today it seems unlikely that any change will occur. The rift may very well be permanent. Here: A wounded man in the community hospital. (Photo by Pierre Terdjman/Paris Match)
