On 05 December 2013, a new wave of violence broke out in Central African Republic. The fighting pitted the predominantly Muslim, ex-Seleka forces against the Christian, anti-Balaka militias. As the violence intensified and killings increased, large numbers of civilians fled to safer areas. Additional French troops were rapidly deployed to support African Union peacekeeping forces in an effort to stabilize the situation. On 11 December, the Emergency Relief Coordinator in consultation with the Inter-Agency Standing Committee Principals declared the evolving crisis a system-wide Level 3 emergency.
