CAR refugees reject religious divides in DRC

Muslims and Christians live side by side in DRC camp, leaving behind religion-based strife that forced them into asylum.

    More than 30,000 Muslims have fled the Central African Republic (CAR) since religious and political conflict began a year ago.

    Nearly 10,000 refugees, both Muslims and Christians, are accommodated in the Boyabu Camp, in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

    The refugees from the two religions live peacefully side by side, and say this was the case for many years back home.
