Muslim Seleka Rebels Chop Off Children's Heads
Its a good thing these weren't Muslim children or else I'd have to withstand billions of graphic internet posts of their mutilated corpses talking about what a horiffic crime it was.
According to Unicef, at least at least two children have been beheaded, and one of them mutilated, in the violence that has gripped Bangui since early December.
"We are witnessing unprecedented levels of violence against children. More and more children are being recruited into armed groups, and they are also being directly targeted in atrocious revenge attacks," said Souleymane Diabate, Unicef representative in CAR. "Targeted attacks against children are a violation of international humanitarian and human rights law and must stop immediately. Concrete action is needed now to prevent violence against children."
