French, African troops try to halt C. African Republic killings
By Emmanuel Braun BANGUI (Reuters) - French soldiers were cheered by residents on Saturday as they began patrolling densely populated neighborhoods of Central African Republic's capital, Bangui, which has been rocked by waves of killings between Muslim and Christian communities. Attacks on civilians in Bangui continued for a third day, aid workers said.
