In Central African Republic, Diamonds Fuel A Cycle of Violence and Poverty, Sept 2014

In Central African Republic, Diamonds Fuel A Cycle of Violence and Poverty, Sept 2014

Taken on 2014-09-19

"Central African Republic has become a nation whose borders exist only on maps, where governmental authority is limited mostly to the 25 square miles occupied by the capital, Bangui, if that. Two years ago, mainly Muslim militias, known collectively as the Seleka, seized power, then plundered the country: from precious – diamonds, gold and ivory – to mundane – guns, cars, office supplies and food. A group of mainly Christian and animist militias later retaliated, and drove the Seleka into the countryside. Today, CAR is less a country than a collection of fiefdoms, ruled by gang-like armed groups, where religious, military, political and ethnic factions struggle for anything that might yield revenue. It’s a state “that has long ceased to exist,” the International Crisis Group said in a report earlier this year."

The Central African Republic conflict is a civil war in the Central African Republic between the Séléka rebel coalition and government forces, which began on 10 December 2012.

Many of the rebel groups were previously involved in the Central African Republic Bush War. This VOA Gallery shows Burundian peacekeepers and other African Union peacekeepers attempting to assuage the unrest.
