Schools reopen in war-ravaged CAR

Despite ceasefire, most classrooms remain empty with students too afraid to return to school.

    Schools have managed to reopen in the Central African Republic after months of religious-based violence between Muslims and Christians.

    Representatives of the largely Muslim Seleka rebels signed agreement with Christian groups in July to end fighting that has killed thousands of people and displaced nearly a million.

    But despite the ceasefire, most of the classrooms remain empty with students too afraid to return.
