Exclusive: CAR violence divides communities in Bria

Ongoing fighting in the Central African Republic has spread to areas deemed largely peaceful, such as Bria, where, like in many other towns and villages, people who were once living together have now created their own religious and ethnic boundaries.

Fighting in the Central African Republic (CAR) between Muslim and Christian armed groups has forced more than a million people from their homes.

And more than two million, that is half the population, need humanitarian aid.

The conflict is now spreading to areas that were considered peaceful before.

Al Jazeera's Catherine Soi has this exclusive report from the rebel-controlled northeastern town of Bria.
