David Simpson who spent five months in African jail wrongly accused of massacre returns to the scene... and is now caught up in a bloody coup

A British safari guide has told of the terrifying moment he was targeted by lawless armed rebels during the bloody coup which has swept through the Central African Republic.

David Simpson, 25, was left to fend off a gun-toting gang that attacked his bush camp deep in the jungle after the 42 armed military police charged with protecting his group deserted them.

It was the second terrifying incident in the conflict-scarred country for Simpson; who had only recently returned there after spending five months in a hellish jail, after being wrongly accused of multiple murder.
