Kevin, a man accused of being a thief by civil servants at the Work Inspection office, lays in pain after being attacked by a man with a machete and sticks, in plain view of others, in Bangui, Central African Republic, Friday, April 18, 2014. Foreign journalists intervened and stopped the beating, as the crowd shouted "he is a thief, he must die." Police arrived and took Kevin into custody. He was then taken to a local hospital for treatment under police surveillance before being brought before a prosecuting officer.
