Over 250,000 refugees from Central African Republic are living in neighbouring Cameroon with a large number spread out across villages. Last week, clashes between militia groups in the C.A.R. killed 25 people while exchanges of gunfire between UN peacekeepers and armed men during a protest against the UN mission killed four civilians and injured 14 other people. A spike of violent attacks in CAR over the last six weeks is dashing hopes of any early return for these refugees spread out across villages in eastern Cameroon. Central African Republic has been in chaos since early 2013 when the Muslim Seleka fighters toppled then-President Francois Bozize prompting reprisals by Christian anti-Balaka militias.
