CAR villagers come out of hiding

After months of living in the bush in fear of constant attacks, some residents have decided to return home.

    The vicious cycle of violence in the Central African Republic has affected not just the capital Bangui, but vast areas of the countryside as well.

    Entire villages have been abandoned amid attacks by Christian and Muslim militias, but there are signs of hope as some residents are starting to return home.

    Al Jazeera's Barnaby Phillips reports from the village of Zere.
