    PDF Print E-mail

    After a series of killings and bloodshed the Central African Republic/CAR/ remains divided along religious lines, with a government-controlled, Christian-dominated south and a Muslim, rebel-controlled north. Indeed the conflict in the CAR has reached exhaustion and killings might be slowing down mainly because the anti-Balaka have almost completed the eviction and terrorization of the Muslims.

    Editors note:

    China has launched its White Paper, a rarity in the conduct of Chinese foreign policy. The document signifies increasing confidence and a new focus on image and global reputation.
