(OHCHR) – The Human Rights Council this morning concluded its interactive dialogue with Marie-Therese Keita-Bocoum, Independent Expert on the situation of human rights in the Central African Republic. In the discussion, several delegations voiced concern about the alarming increase in violence in the Central African Republic, which included targeted attacks against civilians, and humanitarian facilities.  Many attacks appeared to be based on religious or ethnic grounds.  Several speakers welcomed the progress made by the Government towards the establishment of a special criminal court and a national human rights institution.
