Violence continues in the Central African Republic

Violence in the Central African Republic is reaching alarming new levels, according to the United Nations. UNICEF recently reported the killings of at least 16 children, including two who were beheaded. The U.N. also warns that the violence and instability in the CAR could soon “spill over” into neighboring countries and estimates that almost 1 million people have already been displaced.
