Please Read Interfaith Conflict Threatens to Engulf Central African Republic, by World Watch Monitor, at Open Doors.
"Clashes between Christians and Muslims in the northwest of the Central African Republic (CAR) have increased fears of a prolonged interfaith divide in the country.
"The CAR, which borders Chad, Sudan and the Congos, was one of the world’s most evangelised nations (at least on a superficial level), reports Operation World, the internationally recognised handbook of global missions. It says the CAR is 76% Christian and 14% Muslim.
"In March, Michel Djotodia ousted the then President in a coup, largely supported by a coalition of rebel groups, including Islamists, which had previously fought to gain power across the north where the Muslim minority is based.
"The country’s Evangelical Alliance has condemned this latest violence, which has so far claimed the lives of more than 100 people."
