Bangui's Hidden Corpses
A workers from the Swiss Foundation for Mine Action (FSD) prepare to work into the night in Bangui's Kilometre-5 district on Friday, July 31, 2015. The search for the remains of three to four people who were killed and hidden inside the well lasted for nearly a week. According to local witnesses, the victims were killed 18-months ago in violence between Seleka and Anti-Balaka groups, then their bodies were stuffed down the well.
This was the first of hundreds of wells marked for exhumation by international organizations in Bangui. The Central African Republic continues to live in the shadow of the horrific violence between Seleka and Anti-Balaka groups that fractured the country in late 2013 through the spring of 2014.
