Fighting between two ethnic groups in the Central Africa Republic has left 45 people dead and 11,000 displaced, according to Human Rights Watch. Civilians were the target in the reprisal killings.

The violence pitted the ethnic Fulani Union for Peace in the Central African Republic (UPC) against the Popular Front for the Renaissance in the Central African Republic (FPRC).

Both groups are fighting for control of the Ouaka central province, located at the border between the mainly Muslim north and the predominantly Christian south.

“Armed groups are targeting civilians for revenge killings in the central part of the country,” said Lewis Mudge, a researcher at Human Rights Watch (HRW). “As factions vie for power in the Central African Republic, civilians on all sides are exposed to their deadly attacks.”
