The Citizen 19.dec.  Crimes that have been committed include extrajudicial executions, mutilation of bodies, intentional destruction of religious buildings such as mosques and the forced displacement of massive numbers of people.”

Despite the presence of French and African military forces, civilians continued to be “wilfully killed on a daily basis, with at least 90 additional people killed since December 8,” Amnesty said.

France has sent 1,600 troops to CAR, which has been plunged into a humanitarian crisis since the Seleka coalition rose up against the government in December 2012 and overthrew president Francois Bozize, a Christian, in March.

Interim president Michel Djotodia has been struggling to restore law and order in the country, which is rich in gold and diamonds, despite the support of more than 3,500 African Union peacekeepers.

About 400,000 of CAR’s 4.5 million people have been displaced and scores of civilians have been killed, especially in the country’s north-west.
