Government troops have committed the worst atrocities of a simmering conflict in the Central African Republic, burning villages, killing civilians and forcing hundreds of thousands from their homes, a human rights group said in a report on Friday.

An elite presidential guard unit has been behind most of these atrocities, including the beheading of a teacher and the deaths of 30 civilians in one day last year, said Human Rights Watch.
