A Catholic bishop in the Central African Republic (CAR) has given refuge to 2,000 Muslims who are living in fear of attacks from a mainly Christian militia.

Juan José Aguirre Munoz says that the refugees cannot leave the seminary’s compound in the south-eastern city of Bangassou.

He told the BBC that the refugees “risk death” from anti-balaka militias. The UN’s humanitarian chief warned last week of possible genocide.
