Displaced people are seen on the grounds of a seminary Aug. 9 in Bangassou, Central African Republic. Catholic priests whose villages have been attacked have taken to Facebook to express outrage and appeal for help. In a Facebook message Aug 20, Father Jean-Alain Zembi, rector of Zemio, said at least 30 townspeople were killed when armed groups attacked the police headquarters and hospital, burning houses and stealing valuables. Another Catholic priest, Father Desire Kpangou, said the attackers wore turbans and spoke neither French nor the local language, Sango, suggesting they had come from nearby Sudan.
