Renewed conflict in Central African Republic
Since the military and political conflict started in the Central African Republic (CAR) in late 2012 armed groups have continued to proliferate and factionalise, and despite general elections being held and some sort of “normalcy” having been achieved in Bangui (with sporadic outbreaks of violence) and other parts of CAR, several provinces are effectively under the control of armed groups.
