“At least 700 dead…”
Pastors Raymond Doui, 46; ElisÃ©e Zama, 33; and Jean-Louis Makamba, 48, were killed on Dec. 5 as members of the disbanded SÃ©lÃ©ka rebel forces went on a rampage following an offensive by Christian-dominated anti-Balaka militias.
In all,Â more than 400 people diedÂ in the last three days, according to the Red Cross, while dozens have sought treatment in the corridors of overcrowded hospitals. Â “In reality we must speak of at least 700 dead. The Red Cross has not counted the people that have been slaughtered and thrown into the river or buried directly by relatives or by fishermen.

“Seleka consists largely of jihadists”
The jihad rages in Africa, where nations fall like dominoes under the onslaught of radical headbangers, financed by petrodollars and trained in jihad camps of the ME.
Bangui – “The rebels came from Bambari to Bangassou and after a 5-hour battle with the Central African Armed Forces , yesterday morning at 10 they entered the city,” says to Fides His Exc. Mgr. Juan JosÃ© Aguirre Munos, Bishop of Bangassou, the city in the south-east of Central Africa conquered on March 11 by a dissident faction of the rebel coalition Seleka.

TheÂ jihadistsÂ apply the same modus operandi as those in the Ivory Coast,Â ..
“I have been in Bangui for 3 days for a meeting of the Major Superiors, otherwise you would not have found me on the phone, because one of the first actions taken by the rebels was to cut telephone lines” says the Bishop. “From the little information that we managed to get, we know that the rebels have left a contingent in Bangassou, while the majority of their troops after stealing the Catholic mission car, took the Rafai road, east towards the border with Sudan. “”Last night they arrived in Rafa” – says Mgr. Aguirre Munos-attacked the local Catholic mission, and continued towards the mission of Zemio.””The rebels’ goal is to overthrow the current government and impose a regime of Islamic imprint. These are the jihadists, probably paid for by someone from the outside,” said the Bishop. “The situation is very similar to that of Mali, but the Central African Republic does not seem to alarm the world in the same way.
“In the Country there are troops of the Central Africa Countries , plus a South African military contingent to protect the “sensitive areas” of the capital. “80-90% of the Country is in the hands of Seleka, 5-6 guerrilla groups gathered under this symbol. They consist largely of jihadists who speak Arabic and who after conquering other areas of the Country are also taking the east, where they have killed and raped civilians, looted homes and Christian missions, but not mosques. In the conquered cities they have destroyed the municipal registers and courts, an action aimed at destroying the historical memory of the local population,” said Mgr. Aguirre Munos. “Now they are heading towards Obo, where they will find an explosive situation. Here, in fact the Ugandan troops sent to Central Africa are deployed to counter the LRA , backed by Central African soldiers and U.S. special forces. I do not know what could happen,” concludes the Bishop.
