UN Police in Central African Republic

The Acting Chief of Operations MINUSCA Police in Bangui on 21 June 2014 evaluating the training capacities of trainers from the Cameroon FPU in action supporting African-led International Support Mission to the Central African Republic (MISCA) Police.

 

Fighting broke out in CAR when the mainly Muslim Seleka alliance seized power in a coup in March 2013. UN agencies estimate that 2 million people, almost half of the population, are in need of assistance. The Security Council voted on 10 April 2014 to send 12,000 peacekeepers to help return order to CAR.
