Horrific footage has emerged of a cannibal eating the leg of a Muslim slaughtered by a rampaging Christian mob in the Central African Republic.

The victim was hauled from a bus, battered and then stabbed before being set on fire in the capital city Bangui, according to the BBC.

In the aftermath of the incident, one of his attackers grabbed hold of his leg and then began to devour it.

The cannibal – who calls himself ‘Mad Dog’ - told a BBC reporter that his action was revenge for the murders of his pregnant wife, his sister-in-law and her baby.

He claimed that Muslims were responsible and he was angry with them.   

‘Mad Dog’ spotted his victim on a minibus and gathered a crowd of about 20 Christian youths who forced the bus driver to stop.

Witnesses did not intervene but recorded the footage on mobile phones, including the act of cannibalism.

Sectarian violence in the Central African Republic has been rife following the resignation of the country's Muslim president, Michel Djotodia.
