African countries have started evacuating their citizens from the Central African Republic in recent days amid deteriorating humanitarian conditions and inter-religious violence. A Muslim group, the Seleka, set off a wave of killing and looting in the majority Christian nation after seizing power in March and prompting reprisal attacks from militias. The clashes have killed more than 1,000 since December and the United Nations says 935,000 have been driven from their homes. Aid workers are struggling to provide medical care and adequate food and water for more than 100,000 refugees at the main makeshift camp.
