Par Christian Panika à Bangui, Jean-Pierre Campagne à Libreville

BANGUI, 25 juillet 2014 (AFP) - Des guérillas affaiblies mais toujours dangereuses, des corps expéditionnaires d'armées étrangères, des braconniers d'ivoire, des trafiquants de minerais: l'extrême Sud-Est centrafricain, coincé entre Soudan du Sud et République démocratique du Congo, est une zone de non droit, dans un pays en totale dérive.
