A Grimari, Centrafrique, les groupes armés s'affrontent, la population en plein cauchemar

04/17/2014 09:00 GMT

Par Joris FIORITI

GRIMARI, 17 avril 2014 (AFP) - Les enfants se mettent à courir, les yeux fous, au son de la rafale d'arme lourde : les combats entre ex-rebelles Séléka et miliciens anti-balaka bouleversent la paisible Grimari, bourgade fanée du centre de la Centrafrique.

Les villages sont vides, portes et fenêtres closes, à des kilomètres à la ronde. De rares poules ébouriffées rappellent que la vie, il y a peu encore, suivait normalement son cours.
