Popular Army for the Restoration of Democracy (APRD)

2006 The 7,000-strong APRD, which formed in 2005, carried out its first attacks against the army in the northern town of Pahoua in Houam Pende region. Fighters ruthlessly attacked civilians, religious leaders, aid workers and their property, forcing residents to flee to the bush or to neighbouring Chad. Led by former army lieutenant Florian Djadder, it is said to enjoy support from former president Ange-Félix Patassé. Most APRD members, thought to number between a few hundred and a thousand, are drawn from Patassé’s presidential guard. APRD activity in the northwest displaced large numbers of civilians into the bush and prompted vicious reprisals from government troops, who targeted villages suspected of supporting the rebels.  The UFR, with a smaller force of some 2,000 fighters, operated only in the northern Kabo region.VideoVideo: 2007 meet the Popular Army for the Restoration of Democracy.

Groups and individuals included in TRAC's database range from actual perpetrators of social or political violence to more passive groups that support or condone (perhaps unwittingly) such violence. The spectrum of violence represented by these groups is vast, from Jihadists who bomb train stations to financial institutions that transfer funds. Some groups that originally engaged in violence but have since become legitimate political parties are included to provide historical perspective. TRAC is in no way attempting to determine whether groups or individuals are terrorists -- only to convey reported information about their activities and official State status. While TRAC attempts to ensure the accuracy of its TRAC database, the entries in the database are from numerous different sources. Hence, TRAC cannot and does not warrant the accuracy of the entries in its database. The editors of TRAC may modify these entries at any time and welcome comments and suggested corrections or additions.  Please write [email protected] or hit the "SUBMIT ADDITIONS" button on the page of the group profile about which you wish to comment.
