Three UN-mandated international investigators have launched a probe into human rights violations in the crisis-hit Central African Republic.

The probe comes amid fears of genocide and ethnic cleansing in the country against Muslims. The group will spend two weeks in the country and tries to speak with the victims, and witnesses. The head of the group, Bernard Acho Muna, insists that the impunity of the perpetrators of the crimes should be ended. The conflict in the C.A.R. erupted after Christian militias launched coordinated attacks on the mostly Muslim Seleka group, which toppled the government last March. Christian militias, however, have been targeting the Muslim population as a whole.
