CAR faces food crisis

Violence between the Christian majority and Muslims has been rife in the Central African Republic (CAR) since last year.

As an increasing number of Muslims leave the country, aid organisations have warned that the mass exodus of the population will have a detrimental effect on the country's economy.

According to Oxfam and Action Against Hunger, there are less than 10 wholesalers left in the country.

Therefore, the already sparse food supplies will soon dry up should the situation not change.

Muslim Brotherhood accusations

Egypt's army has accused the Muslim Brotherhood of creating a military wing to attack security forces.

The group is already under attack from Egyptian security forces.

Since the army overthrew President Mohamed Morsi last year, Egypt has been plagued by a series of bombings and suicide attacks.

The Brotherhood was labelled a terrorist organisation by the interim government.

The group denies any involvement in the violence.
