The neighborhood of kpitene 1 in Bria is eerily quiet -- the only sound is birds and buzzing insects. More than 20 people were killed when clashes between armed groups erupted last week. Countless homes were burned.
Nearly every home in this neighbourhood was torched -- remnants of the inhabitants lives are littered around. The few houses left untouched show signs of hasty departures -- overturned stools, dishes. #carcrisis#bria#centrafrique#onassignment#photojournalism

Le saviez-vous? La rougeole est une maladie évitable grâce à la vaccination. En septembre 2015 dans le camp de déplacés de Carnot à l’ouest de la République centrafricaine, MSF a vacciné les enfants de 6 mois à 15 ans contre cette maladie meurtrière.
