    They went to the airport when the massacres began. Residents of Bangui, the capital of the Central African Republic, knew that French soldiers were stationed at Bangui M'Poko International Airport. And so when the latest round of fighting in the city began last week, they fled to the airport, hoping the soldiers would offer them protection. We landed at M'Poko five days later. The sectarian fighting that has led CAR, one of the poorest countries in the world, to the brink of collapse began last March when Michel Djotodia and his loose rebel alliance (known as the Séléka) stormed Bangui and ousted President François Bozizé. Djotodia appointed himself president and tried to integrate the Séléka into the armed forces, but it didn't work. Even Djotodia admitted that he didn't have control ov...

The French military, which controls Bangui airport, said about 2-thousand Central Africans took refuge there on Thursday, most if not all of them Christian, and the crowd was continuing to grow on Friday. They fled their homes following a surge of bloodshed on Thursday that left more than 100 people dead in the currently lawless capital.

Many people are taking refuge in Bangui airport where Doctors Without Borders, the only humanitarian aid organisation in the area, is struggling to cope with the influx of people. "It's really a big mess because there's nobody else here and we really hope that the other organisations will start to do anything there," explained Tessy Fautsch, emergency medical coordinator at the airport. "As you can see, there are a lot of people everywhere, no toilets, not a lot of water and yeah, it's just a mess," Fautsch said. Reports suggest between ten and forty thousand people have flocked to the airport, in a desperate attempt to seek shelter from the violence. The CAR has been gripped by chaos since mainly Muslim Seleka rebels took control of the country in March. France recently boosted its military presence in the capital following a wave of massacres that has killed over 500 people.

Zoom out from official to official with Mildred Trouillot Aristide 17. Officials STORYLINE Former Haiti President Jean-Bertrand Aristide on Monday claimed he was forced into exile by US forces, telling him they would "start shooting and killing" if he refused. Aristide spent his first day in hastily arranged exile in the Central African Republic after a violent rebellion to oust him from power as Haiti's first elected president. When asked if he left Haiti on his own, Aristide answered: "No. I was forced to leave." "They were telling me that if I don't leave they would start shooting and be killing in a matter of time," Aristide told The Associated Press, during a brief interview via speaker phone. Aristide, his wife and a few companions landed just after daylight on Monday aboard a contracted US government plane at Bangui's airport in the Central African Republic, a nation as impoverished and nearly as coup-prone as the one he left. Central African Republic government ministers stood by as Aristide descended from a jet in a rumpled suit and a firmly knotted tie. His wife, looking worried, was by his side. Aristide's arrival lacked the red carpet and greeting from the host head of state usually afforded dignitaries. No soldiers were visible as Aristide disembarked from the plane. Although rich in gold, diamonds and other resources, the Central African Republic is habitually unable to pay its civil servants, helping spark strikes, unrest and coup attempts. The country has weathered nine coups or coup attempts since independence from France in 1960.

Djotodia appointed himself president and tried to integrate the Séléka into the armed forces, but it didn't work. Even Djotodia admitted that he didn't have control over most of the rebels, many of whom are said to be mercenaries from neighboring Chad and Sudan. Bands of mostly Muslim Séléka rebels are now terrorizing the majority Christian country, raping and murdering civilians as they roam. Civilians have formed their own "anti-balaka" militias — balaka means machete or sword — to fight back. Meanwhile, many of those who aren't fighting have sought refuge in the only places they consider safe: houses of worship. And the Muslim civilian minority fears reprisals by the anti-balaka forces after nine months of Séléka rule. It's important to note that many people with firsthand knowledge of the war have told us that the religious aspect of the conflict — Muslim rebels vs. Christian civilians — is overblown. They say this is not an ideological war, but rather a war of identity that goes back generations. Regardless of the root causes, the United Nations and other prominent NGOs speculate that the situation could become far worse.

Internally displaced people in an aircraft hangar 13. Wide pan of tents in camp STORYLINE: Legislators from the Central African Republic (CAR) flew to the Chadian capital of N'Djamena on January 8th 2014 to take part in discussions on the future of the country. Among those boarding a plane at M'poko Airport in the capital Bangui was President Michel Djotodia, the rebel who seized control of CAR, only to see the desperately poor country descend into sectarian bloodshed and near anarchy. Earlier Djotodia had agreed to resign, along with his prime minister, announced Ahmat Allami, the secretary-general of the Economic Community of Central African States. Allami made the announcement following a summit in neighbouring Chad on the crisis. There has been growing pressure on Djotodia to step aside, and the resignation should help placate the armed militias who have used violence to seek his departure. However, his departure could also create an even greater power vacuum in a land that has long known coups and dictatorship, as it leaves the country in the hands of a weak transitional government. Prime Minister Nicolas Tiangaye, a longtime opposition leader prior to the March 2013 coup, is also stepping aside, Allami said. Central African Republic has long been one of the world's most unstable countries. The March 2013 coup brought heavily armed rebels to power who then proceeded to carry out atrocities against civilians. The rebels are mostly from the minority Muslim population and hail from the country's long-marginalised north, and the resentment toward their abuses transformed the conflict into one with religious undertones. *** He sought exile on January 11th in the tiny West African nation of Benin.

FOR CLEAN VERSION SEE STORY NUMBER: 921300 Thousands of people gathered at the airport at the Central African Republic's capital of Bangui on Friday, seeking refuge from the Muslim rebel group-turned de facto government known as Seleka. The French military, which controls Bangui airport, said about 2-thousand Central Africans took refuge there on Thursday, most if not all of them Christian, and the crowd was continuing to grow on Friday. They fled their homes following a surge of bloodshed on Thursday that left more than 100 people dead in the currently lawless capital. As French soldiers and equipment - including a fighter jet, helicopters, parachutists and armored vehicles - continued to arrive into one of the world's poorest countries, locals stood behind coils of barbed wire, banging on plastic buckets, waving rags in the air and singing with joy. The Seleka rebels have run rampant in Central African Republic after toppling the president in March, fighting against Christian militias who back the ousted leader. The capital remains awash in weapons and recent attempts at disarmament have yielded little success. Thursday's bloodshed came as Christian militias, formed by supporters of the ousted president, raided Muslim neighborhoods. It came hours before a UN Security Council vote to authorize the French deployment. Despite the cheers that went up when a jet engine roared overhead, France insisted it was going only reluctantly into Central African Republic and with the limited aim of doubling its presence in the country to 1,200 troops.
