A woman mourns after her sister, Vanessa, was shot in Kilo 5, Bangui, Central African Republic on Feb. 9, 2014. Just after this photograph was taken, her cousin was killed by Rwandan soldiers as he was killing a muslim in a revenge attack. At one time there were 30,000 muslims in the town, now only 300 remain. The rest have fled to Chad. Anti Balaka Christians gave the Muslims 24 hours to leave or be killed. They left. (Photo credit: Marcus Bleasdale / VII)
