CWN Editor's Note: A Catholic priest has died of injuries he suffered during an attack last week on his parish in Seko in the Central African Republic. The death of Father Joseph Désiré Angbabata was confirmed by Cardinal Dieudonné Nzapalainga, who denounced the continued violence between rival militia groups. The cardinal added that it is misleading to describe the groups as Christian and Muslim; he insisted that the fundamental conflict is political, not religious.
