TRADUCERE Agnus Dei: Cel putin 30 de crestini au fost impuscati mortal de rebeli musulmani care au atacat o Biserica in Republica Africa Centrala, o tara sfaramata de razboi,- a spus un pastor.

,,Noi eram in biserica cand am auzit impuscaturi afara”, a declarat miercuri la Associated Press, Freddy Mboula, preot la Fatima de Notre Dame din Bangui. -,,Sau auzit tipete si dupa 30 de minute de impuscaturi erau cadavre peste tot.”

Militiile crestine si musulmane au avut o serie de ciocniri in aceasta natiune africana tulbure, de cand coalitia Seleka a parasit puterea in luna Ianuarie. Lupta dintre rebelii Seleka si luptatorii anti-balaka a escalat dupa ce presedintele interimar Michael Djotodia, a demisionat la inceputul acestui an.

Managerul Regional pentru Africa, Cameron Thomas, care reprezinta organizatia Internationala de Interes Crestin, a spus ca aceasta ultima violenta serveste ca un exemplu de „cultura de represalii” care a cuprins aceasta tara.

In timp ce militiile anti-balaka continua sa comita atacuri impotriva militantilor si civililor, cei ramasi din Seleka reantorc aceste atacuri, si civili nevinovati, inclusiv crestini care cauta adapostul in spatele zidurilor bisericii, continua sa sufere consecintele violentelor sectariene in crestere,- a spus Thomas.

,,Viitorul Republicii Africa Centrala va continua sa se intunece atata timp cat comunitatea internationala nu i-a masuri decisive de a opri violenta ce are loc si sa aduca la infaptuire o resolutie necesara care sa previna atacuri in viitor,”

30 Christians Shot Dead Inside Church

by Muslim Rebels in Central African Republic Attack

At least 30 Christians were shot dead by Muslim rebels in an attack on a church in the war-torn Central African Republic, a pastor said.

„We were in the church when were heard the shooting outside,” the Rev. Freddy Mboula of Notre Dame de Fatima in Bangui told The Associated Press on Wednesday. „There were screams and after 30 minutes of gunfire there were bodies everywhere.”

Christian and Muslim militias have had several clashes in the troubled African nation since the Seleka coalition left power in January. The fighting between Seleka rebels and anti-balaka fighters escalated following the resignation of interim President Michel Djotodia earlier this year.

International Christian Concern’s Regional Manager for Africa, Cameron Thomas, said that the latest violence serves as an example of the ongoing „culture of reprisal” that has gripped CAR.

„As anti-balaka militias continue to commit attacks against both militants and civilians, with Séléka remnants returning such attacks in kind, innocent civilians, including Christians seeking refuge behind church walls, continue to suffer the consequences of growing sectarian violence,” Thomas said.

„The future of the Central African Republic will continue to darken so long as the international community does not take decisive action to stem the ongoing violence and bring about the necessary resolution to prevent future attacks.”

Reuters reported that youths have set up barricades on roads in Ghana on Thursday to protest the church attack.

„People need to understand that we will crack down on them and bring them before national or international justice. We will have zero tolerance for the authors of this kind of act,” said Francis Che, head of communications for the African Union peacekeeping force MISCA.

The president of the Episcopal Conference of Cameroon said in April that the Roman Catholic Church is the only institution that is still functioning in CAR.

„The State no longer exists. The only institution that is functioning is the Catholic Church. Actually, the displaced are living in Catholic parishes,” His Exc. Mgr. Samuel Kleda, who is also the archbishop of Douala, said in an interview.

According to statistics, 25 percent of the population is said to be Roman Catholic, while another 25 percent is Protestant.

Other persecution watchdog groups, such as Open Doors, have also said that Christians face an increasingly dangerous existence in the African country. The group lists CAR as No. 16 on its World Watch List of countries where Christians face the most persecution.

In February, one of Open Doors’ field directors for west and central Africa, said that thousands of people are fleeing the sectarian violence and hiding in churches and mosques.

„We would need the help of other organizations and an escort to visit those sites. So until we can have that organized, we decided to stick to the areas more easily accessible which include some of the refugee camps scattered across the city. First, we visited the displaced at two church compounds. As we entered the first camp, I was moved with compassion when I saw the difficult circumstances people are enduring,” the field director said.
