Abstract:Television broadcast made for France 2 in 2013. The power struggle in the Central African Republic is becoming increasingly violent. Not long ago the rival Muslim and Christian groups were able to live in peace but now the cycle of attacks and revenge attacks is taking over the country. In a country where around half the population is under eighteen that means that children are among the worst affected by the war. Some were enlisted as child soldiers and went on to commit atrocious acts whilst others have been hospitalised or displaced because of the fighting. We meet former child soldiers, as well as the young victims of machete attacks and bombings from both sides of the religious divide. Nobody feels safe anymore. The African Union troops are struggling to keep control of the explosive situation. [Abstract reproduced from website]
