"Flight from Rage: Conflict in the Central African Republic"
With outside temperatures reaching near 90 degrees, the inside of a semi trailer filled with almost 100 Muslim men, women and children and their belongings edged even higher as they ride in a convoy bringing them out of the Central African Republic. Similar convoys have been attacked as Muslims seek to flee the country. The global community has been largely indifferent to the unfolding tragedy with Ebola, the Islamic State, a missing Malasia Airlines plane and unrest in the Ukraine stealing most of the headlines as the conflict continues to smolder.
