The UN has taken over peacekeeping operations in Central African Republic (CAR) from a regional African force but human rights groups warn that a mere change in headgear – from green berets to blue helmets – will do little to stem the bloodshed.

More than 5,000 people have died in CAR since December, in the wake of a coup that plunged the country into chaos.
