|Violence against Muslims in CAR is ‘genocide’, Iran says||
TEHRAN – The horrific violent behavior against Muslims in the Central African Republic is a “kind of genocide”, Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani said in a meeting on Wednesday with his South African counterpart Max Sisulu in Cape Town.
This issue poses a threat to the Central African Republic and actions must be taken to stop it, Larijani noted.
The Central African Republic has been facing a crisis since December 2013, when the Christian Anti-balaka militia launched attacks against the mostly Muslim Seleka group.
Many Muslims have fled to other parts of the Central African Republic or to other countries to avoid being killed by the Christian militia.
