Religious conflict threatens Central African Republic

Tens of thousands of people have been forced to flee "unprecedented levels of violence" in the Central African Republic, the medical charity Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) has said.

The United Nations has warned that the Central African Republic is at risk of spiralling into genocide.

Senior officials say the international community must intervene to stop armed groups from inciting violence between Christians and Muslims.

The country has been virtually lawless since rebels seized the capital and ousted the president in March.

A BBC team has gained rare access to the country, from where Laeila Adjovi reports.
