CAR Civilian Deaths a Precursor to Wider Regional Violence?

A senior United Nations (UN) official has warned that rising violence in the Central African Republic threatens to destabilise neighbouring countries. This follows a call from Amnesty International for an investigation into the deaths of as many as 100 civilians in a displaced persons camp in Alindao who, according to eyewitnesses, were burnt alive and shot after UN peacekeepers abandoned their posts during an attack.
