An internally displaced Muslim boy stands in front of his mother who is carrying another child in BodaBy Emmanuel Braun BODA Central African Republic (Reuters) - In normal times, the rickety wooden bridges at each end of the red-dirt main street in Boda were gateways to shops and a bustling market in the diamond-mining town in Central African Republic. Today, they mark the fine line between life and death for hundreds of Muslims living under siege, encircled by Christian 'anti-balaka' militia fighters bent on chasing out the country's Islamic population. "We live in a prison," said Adou Kone, a tailor. It's very expensive to buy food ... Our life is at a critical stage."

Monday's mass abduction of schoolgirls aged 15 to 18 by Boko Haram, who are fighting for a breakaway Islamic state in northern Nigeria, shocked Africa's most populous country. The Islamists attacked Chibok school, in remote Borno state, which had 129 girls staying in it, on Monday. Borno state education commissioner Inuwa Kubo said in a statement late on Saturday that 16 students had managed to flee back home during the night of the attack, while another 28 had escaped after being abducted.
