أثناء هروب قافلة كبيرة من المسلمين الفارين في حماية قوات حفظ السلام الإفريقية إلى "الكاميرون"، أكد الشاب المسلم "عليدو" - البالغ 14 عامًا - في تصريحاته لـ"وكالة أنباء الأناضول" أنه أصبح لا يرغب في رؤية المسلحين النصارى من مناهضي "البلاكا"، الذين ما يزالون يقتلون المسلمين ويُدمرون ممتلكاتهم؛ حيث أكد تعبه من كثرة الفرار والاختباء؛ حيث قتلوا وذبحوا الكثيرين.
وقد رصدت كاميرات المراقبين والإعلام العديد من المنازل المحروقة بقرية "بار" الحدودية، وهذا إلى جانب بعض نُسَخ المصاحف الملقاة على الأرض إلى جانب بطاقات الهُوية؛ المصدر: شبكة الألوكة.

Central African Muslims seek safety in Cameroon
Terrorized by anti-Muslim atrocities being committed by Christian anti-balaka militias, Alidou, a 14-year-old Muslim boy, anxiously waits to cross into Cameroon to flee the sectarian bloodletting in the troubled Central African Republic (CAR).
"I don't want to see them [anti-balaka]," Alidou, who joined a convoy of trucks carrying Muslims fleeing the violence, told Anadolu Agency.
"Every time they come, I run and hide in the forest; they've killed many people," added Alidou, whose mother and father, the latter an ex-Seleka fighter, have already fled to neighboring Cameroon.
Aboard one of the trucks is Alidou's childhood friend, Juisse, a Christian, who joined the convoy in fear of his father, an anti-balaka militiaman and former member of the CAR army (FACA).
Juisse hopes to go to Cameroon and live with his grandmother there.
The convoy, led by African peacekeepers, set out early Saturday from Bangui, CAR's restive capital, en route to Garoua-Boulai on the border with Cameroon.
Hundreds of burnt-out homes and trucks can be seen along the road to Bouar, a border town. Copies of the Quran, the Muslim holy book, along with Muslim identity documents, lie on the ground.
Each time the convoy stops, the refugees search for discarded Qurans and the identify papers of missing friends or relatives. Many try - in vain - to call loved ones still stranded in distant villages.
CAR descended into anarchy in March 2013 when Seleka rebels – said to be mostly Muslim – ousted Francois Bozize, a Christian, who had come to power in a 2003 coup. The rebels later installed Michel Djotodia, a Muslim, as interim president.
In the months since, the country has been plagued by tit-for-tat sectarian violence between Christian anti-balaka militias and former seleka fighters.
Violence against Muslims has intensified since Catherine Samba-Panza, a Christian, was elected interim president in January.
Machete-wielding Christian militiamen now roam the Bangui suburbs, often erecting illegal checkpoints in order to identify and lynch Muslims.
A number of Muslims have recently been lynched in broad daylight and their bodies set on fire. Several mosques in Bangui, too, have been destroyed and scores of Muslim homes looted.
Christians, who constitute the majority of CAR's population, accuse Muslims of supporting former seleka rebels blamed for attacking Christian homes, looting property and carrying out summary executions.
