Civil Unrest/Political Tension
There has been sustained violence in CAR since 2013 and the security situation remains unstable and dangerous. Rebel activity and lawlessness is prevalent throughout the country and despite the presence of international peacekeeping forces the potential for sectarian violence remains high.
The security situation in the capital, Bangui, remains fragile and there continue to be reports of violence, killing and looting.
