What if they were Muslim?

Armed men kidnapped a female UN employee in the capital of the strife-torn Central African Republic on Tuesday, a day after two aid workers were seized, said a source with the UN force. The gunmen, who appeared to be linked to the Christian anti-balaka militia, seized the woman from a van taking UN staffers to work in Bangui, the source with the UN’s Minusca force in the country said on condition of anonymity.

Two aid workers, including a 67-year-old French woman, were kidnapped on Monday in the capital of the strife-torn Central African Republic, the French government said. The pair, who worked for the Catholic medical charity CODIS, were stopped by four men carrying Kalashnikov rifles in the centre of Bangui as they returned from a town north of the capital, their driver said. The second aid worker is said to be a local man.

    I can feature someone wondering how a whole militia could fit in one CAR.

    It seems that it’s always someone against the next. Here, the Christian anti-balaka versus the Séléka, who have formally disbanded though they remain informally intact in my understanding – whether as much has been stated. A whole lotta grudges being held – a whole lotta lack of appreciate of or for one’s fellow man. I’d say that we should put all of our grudges aside and start over – but, that would be quite naïve of me, I suppose. Whatever.
