    Central: religious risk comes more from outside
    [​IMG]

    "Risk religious" in Central comes more from outside, especially infiltration of elements of radical Islamist group Boko Haram from Nigeria, as the country where the former rebel Seleka, accused of 'atrocities against the Christian population, has no "religious agenda," said Thierry Vircoulon specialist in Central Africa at the International Crisis Group (ICG).

    Q: After deadly clashes in early September between Christians and Muslims in the North-West of the Central African Republic, the French President Francois Hollande has raised the risk of "religious confrontation" to call for an urgent response from the international community. This threat is real?

    A: For the first time since independence, are Muslims who took power in Bangui, raising concerns in the region as the Central African Republic, predominantly Christian country, is located on the divide between Muslims and Christians in Africa Central.

    There has already been in the past repeated clashes, including Bangui, between the people and the Muslim traders who dominate the market which causes resentment there were also the acts against the Seleka of religious buildings and church personnel, and finally, what happened in the West took a religious turn, because it is Christian populations harassed by Muslim fighters and cons-attack.

    But we are not in a logic of religious war. It is a vis-à-vis antagonism of a new power, a Muslim of course, but also extremely predator yet.

    Q: Central Africans, including some religious but also close to former President François Bozizé, overthrew leaders in March, have cautioned against forced Islamization of Central Africa, even making a parallel with the situation in Mali, where Islamist armed groups occupied the north of the country for several months are imposing Sharia. Do you share this concern?

    A: This is propaganda. At the beginning of the crisis in December, it was the language of Bozizé and his government saying that Seleka were Muslim radicals, but it was to rally the West to their cause.

    People of Seleka not convert from Central Africans, they came to steal. It has nothing to do with what happened in Mali. The Seleka is actually composed of Muslims, but we can not talk about Muslim rebellion, they have no religious agenda.

    Q: So there is no "risk" in CAR religious?

    The Muslim risk is more likely to infiltration of elements of Boko Haram from Nigeria. They are at war in northern Nigeria. fighting is very violent with Nigerian security forces, and according to our information, they began to scatter in the countries of the region. Central Africa is now a failed state, it is the perfect place to hide.

    The Boko Haram terrorists who massacred more than 40 students in a Nigerian college dormitory were in military uniforms and were mistaken at first for soldiers, survivors have revealed.

    When men in soldiers' uniform arrived at the agricultural college in northern Nigeria, Musa Bade, a teacher, was relieved.

    The previous week a school 10 miles away in Buni Yadi had been attacked, with three dead, and Mr Bade supposed that now, at last, protection had arrived. But he was mistaken: what was about to unfold was a massacre that was savage even by the standards of Boko Haram, the extremist Islamist group that has brought terror to northern Nigeria.

    "The attackers came in two Hilux (all-terrain) vans and seven motorcycles around 1:30am. They just opened fire indiscriminately on students in their hostels.

    "They all wore army uniform and were heavily armed. One of them stood by the door, shooting at students who made for the door to escape.

    "Some of the students were so fortunate, they escaped death by hiding in the ceiling."
