Edition spéciale de Un mot une image aujourd’hui avec Camille Lepage.

La photojournaliste française a été tuée alors qu’elle était en reportage en République centrafricaine. Son corps a été retrouvé le 13 mai par les forces Sangaris.

Pas de mots pour accompagner les photos de la journaliste. C’est à la force de ses photos et aux commentaires de leur auteur que l’on laissera aujourd’hui la parole. Au delà de la beauté artistique, ses photos étaient un témoignage des exactions en Centrafrique, des « populations dont on ne parlait pas et qui étaient en danger » selon sa mère sur RTL.

Sur place bien avant l’intervention française et internationale, Camille Lepage collaborait avec des grands titres de presse (Le Monde, Libération). Elle s’était installée il y a deux ans au Soudan du Sud.

The FOMAC armed forces are composed of 2000 soldiers from Cameroun, Chad, Soudan, Gabon, and Congo-Brazzaville and are in charge of security within the country and demilitarization. There are a lot of tensions between the forces, especially coming from the Chadian side who tend to favoritize their citizens during the disarment process, and not take their weapons. Almost everyday, clashes happen between the forces, discrediting them in front of the civilians.
