On Tuesday, January 22, UN officials announced that violent clashes were reported in Mambéré-Kadéï prefecture on Sunday, January 20. According to local sources, members of a Fulani militia attacked the village of Zaoro Sangou, killing at least 14 people, including a pastor and a gendarme. Further clashes are possible in the area in the near term.


The Central African Republic (CAR) has suffered recurrent bouts of civil conflict since December 2012, which has led to hundreds of deaths, almost 650,000 internally displaced persons (IDPs), and forced more than 550,000 people to seek refuge in neighboring Cameroon, Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), and Chad.


Individuals present in CAR are advised to monitor local developments, maintain a high degree of situational awareness, and remain vigilant for potential militant activity.

In general, a number of Western governments advise their citizens against travel to most of the east of the country for various security reasons, including the presence of armed groups.
