Muslim exodus threatens food crisis in C. African Republic

February 12, 2014

"An exodus of Muslim traders fleeing attacks by Christian militia in Central African Republic has pushed food markets there to the brink of collapse, threatening the nation with even deeper crisis...According to a survey by Oxfam and Action Contre la Faim [Action Against Hunger], supplies of staples to Bangui come from some 40 wholesalers who import provisions. Fewer than 10 of these wholesalers remain and they threaten to leave soon if security does not improve."
