Muslims trapped in Central African Republic church

In the Central African Republic, a nine-month-long ordeal for hundreds of Muslims shows no sign of ending.

    There are hundreds of Muslims trapped inside a Catholic Church compound in Bangassou after the town was overrun by members of a Christian armed group last May.

    They took shelter in the church and risk being killed if they leave the protection of UN peacekeepers.

    Al Jazeera's Catherine Soi reports from Bangassou, Central African Republic.
