In CAR: Prisoners escape dozens died amidst violence

from BBC

 Hundreds of inmates at a prison in the Central African Republic have escaped as a wave of violence left dozens dead.

After a Muslim taxi driver was killed, clashes erupted Saturday, September 26, 2015 between Christian militia and Muslim groups.
Members of a Christian militia known as the anti-Balaka attacked the prison Monday, freeing hundreds of soldiers and militiamen.

The CAR has been wracked by violence since a mainly Muslim rebel group, the Seleka, seized power in March 2013.
The Seleka group was then ousted, sparking a wave of violent reprisals against the Muslim population, thousands of whom fled their homes.
