In the middle of Africa there lies a remote and little known country called the Central African Republic, or CAR. Not only is CAR one of the least developed and poorest countries in the world with the world's joint lowest life expectancy, but for the past nine months it has been embroiled in a conflict and state of lawlessness described by many news outlets and commentators as "the worst crisis you've never heard of". On 5 December the United Nations issued a mandate to restore order in CAR "by all necessary means" following a surge of violence in which 394 people were killed in the capital Bangui in just three days of fighting. And many of these people were children. We explain exactly what's going on in CAR and how the conflict reached this point.
