Mapping the Bloodshed
The Central African Republic is being torn apart by civil-war and both Christian and Muslim communities are being targeted by the rival militia. Al Jazeera has created an interesting and informative interactive, Mapping the Bloodshed, which examines the continuing crisis in the Central African Republic.
The interactive story includes a Google Map, a timeline of events and information about the causes of the current civil-war. The map itself includes information about the number of refugees caused by the current crisis, the locations of both Seleka and Anti-Balaka strongholds, and information about important incidents that have occurred in the country since the crisis began.
