Armed groups in Central African Republic (CAR) are using rape and sexual slavery as weapons of war which may amount to crimes against humanity. Human Rights Watch said in a report released on Thursday. Thousands have died and a fifth of Central Africans have been uprooted in a conflict that broke out after Muslim Seleka rebels ousted President Francois Bozize in early 2013.
