Revenge 'full-time business' in CAR

CAR: A group of Muslims has found sanctuary in a church as sectarian violence continues in the Central African Republic. Andrew Harding reports.

Tens of thousands of Muslims have fled the Central African Republic to escape attacks by Christian militias in recent weeks.

The militias claim to be taking revenge for atrocities committed by Muslim rebels last year.

As the cycle of sectarian violence continues in the CAR, one group of Muslims has found sanctuary in an unexpected place - a Christian church.

Andrew Harding reports.
