The Government of the Central African Republic, with the assistance of an African peacekeeping force (Mission interafricaine de surveillance des accords de Bangui, MISAB), conducted a weapons collection and confiscation programme in 1997 for the purpose of recovering arms and ammunition looted from government stores in April-May 1996.
Of the more than 2,000 small arms, 100 artillery pieces, and several hundred thousand rounds of ammunition taken, 95 per cent of the heavy weaponry and 62 per cent of the small arms and light weapons were retrieved (Faltas, 2001).
