Central African Republic: rebels seize city, loot church
Catholic World News - January 30, 2013
Rebels in the Central African Republic have seized control of Alindao, a city of 160,000 that is the seat of one of the nation’s nine dioceses, destroyed the city hall and police stations, and looted a Catholic church.
