Terror and tears in Central African Republic
Project info

In March 2013, the Muslim-dominated Seleka rebel movement seized power in Bangui, bringing the corrupt regime of François Bozizé to an end.
But a reign of terror ensued, for weeks, as soldiers backing the new president, Michel Djotodia, led a wave of violence and looting targeting Christian communities.
Michaël Zumstein has made a number of trips to the Central African Republic, the first in September 2013 when he saw violent attacks on Christian civilians. And he was there when Christian self-defense anti-Balaka militia gained control and Muslims were forced to flee. His photographs stand as a record of the unprecedented violence that continues unabated.
