ABSTRACT
The Central Africa Republic has been in a serious predicament of humanitarian assistance since December, 2013. It started with the ousting of former president Francois Bozize from power by the "Seleka rebels". What started as rebel coalition against an autocratic, corrupt, nepotistic government was now descending along religious divide. It is believed that the conflict was triggered by the activities of the "Seleka rebels" when they forcefully kicked out the government from Bangui. The anti Balaka Christian self-defense group was formed in order to defend Christian communities. This group in retaliation started committing atrocities against the Muslims. According to the European Commission on humanitarian Aid and Protection the number of people that has been domestically displaced is 600.000 and 160.000 are in the political capital Bangui. The displaced population is in neighboring countries like The Republic of Congo, Niger, Cameroon and Chad. Both sides are engage in fragrant human rights violation. Thus human right groups are investigating to identify and crackdown the perpetrators responsible for the crimes. However, despite the international aspiration to rescue the situation, the conflict still remains the same as more atrocities continue to reign in CAR.
