2014-05-29

Muslim rebels attacked a Catholic parish in Bangui, the embattled capital of the Central African Republic, killing as many as 30 people, including the parish priest. 

The attack took place on Wednesday, when the Seleka rebels stormed the Our Lady of Fatima church compound with gunfire and grenades. Dozens of people, Christian and Muslim alike had taken refuge there to escape the fighting.

The archdiocese of Bangui confirmed the death of Paul Emile Nzale. The 76-year-old parish priest. He's the second priest killed in the country this year, as a result of the on-going fighting.

Both the Seleka and the largely Christian Anti-Balaka militias are accused of atrocities against civilians, based on their religious affiliation.

According to the U.N. Refugee agency, the fight for control between the two groups has displaced 630,000 people. Another 326,000 have fled to neighboring countries. With no peace deal in sight, the U.N. says that number is likely to rise.
