Inside Central African Republic town where Christians fled

The Central African Republic (CAR) has been experiencing a humanitarian crisis since March when rebels seized power, forcing the president to flee the country.

The forces of the Seleka rebels are largely Muslim and they have been accused of attacking Christian civilians since they took over.

This has led to some Christian groups carrying out revenge attacks on Muslims, raising fears of widespread communal violence.

The BBC's Laeila Adjovi reports from the northern town of Bossangoa, where many Christians have fled their homes to seek sanctuary in a Catholic mission.
