Central African Republic [Duplicate]

Shrouded bodies lay in a mosque in Bangui, Central African Republic, Thursday Dec. 5 2013 following a day-long gun battle between Seleka soldiers and Christian militias. Over 40 bodies, civilian and some military, have been brought for funeral preparations. Gunfire and mortar rounds erupted in the town, leaving scores dead and wounded. To try to put an end to sectarian violence, the UN security council passed a motion allowing French troops to deploy in the country in order to protect civilians and insure security by all necessary means.
