CENTRAL AFRICAN REPUBLIC: Fears of violence before elections

Continuing violence in some regions of the Central African Republic (CAR), including the southeast where Ugandan Lord's Resistance Army rebels [ http://www.irinnews.org/Report.aspx?ReportID=89265 ] are active, could affect general elections due on 23 January, aid workers and observers warned.
"Residents of remote areas in the south live in fear of rebel attacks," an aid worker, who requested anonymity, told IRIN. "Is this also going to affect their participation in the polls? We don't know."
An estimated five million voters will go to the polls on 23 January to elect a new president and 105 legislators according to Reliefweb
