Violence a Growing Problem in Central Africa Republic

iStock/Thinkstock(JOHANNESBURG) -- Violence in the Central African Republic is reaching unprecedented levels, according to Doctors Without Borders.

The group says fighting between religious groups has dramatically increased in recent weeks. Doctors are treating victims of what they say is horrific violence, including machete and gunshot wounds.  Among the victims are women and children.

Doctors Without Borders says more than 30,000 people have been displaced. Survivors say their villages were burned and residents were attacked as they fled.
