Rival groups fight to take control of CAR

There is fear of sectarian violence as new rebel group targets government forces.

    Just months after seizing power in the Central African Republic, Seleka rebels are now facing a rebellion of their own.

    Another armed group called Anti-balika is carrying out attacks against the Seleka, forcing nearly 200,000 from their homes.

    Some people say the rebels are being funded by the former president, who was forced out of office by a coup in March.

    In the third and final part of Al Jazeera's series on the Forgotten Crisis in Central African Republic, Nazanine Moshiri reports from Bouar, in the far west of the country.
