Church desecrated in Central African Republic

August 23, 2013

Members of Seleka, the Islamist rebel movement that seized power in the Central African Republic in March, desecrated a church, looted a rectory and convent, and burned down huts used for religious instruction, the Fides news agency reported.

The incidents took place in Bohong, a rural town in the western part of the nation, after local hunters killed a Seleka colonel. Some young local Muslims joined in the violence.
