Central African Republic cannibal eats Muslim man’s leg in mob attack
A man who took part in a mob attack on a Muslim man in Central African Republic said he ate part of the man’s flesh as “revenge” for the murder of his family.
Ouandja Magloire was part of a Christian mob that hauled the victim from a bus, beat and stabbed the man, before setting him on fire in the capital city Bangui, the BBC reported.
Magloire, who goes by “Mad Dog,” told BBC that the Muslims killed his pregnant wife, his sister-in-law and her baby.
“They broke down the door and cut my baby in half. I promised I would get my revenge,” he said.
Footage of the attack shows him eating the man’s leg.
“I poured petrol over him. I burned him. I ate his leg, right down the white bone,” he told BCC.
According to eyewitnesses, no one tried to intervene.
Sectarian violence in the country flared up again following the resignation on Friday of President Michel Djotodia, the first Muslim to rule the Christian-majority nation.
Mr. Djotodia’s rebels have been accused of persecuting Christians, and self-defense groups known as anti-balaka, have been accused of retaliating.
