A mechanic fixes a truck carrying Muslims attempting to flee the capital, after it broke down and French troops had to step in to protect it from a crowd of hostile Christian residents, in the Gobongo neighborhood of Bangui, Central African Republic, Friday, Dec. 27, 2013. In recent days, passenger vehicles carrying fleeing Muslims toward the northern edge of town have repeatedly come under attack by anti-balaka militiamen, with some passengers executed and others robbed. Military escorts shuttled nationals of Chad and Cameroon to the airport Friday to board evacuation flights, as French troops stepped in to help Muslims fleeing north by road make it safely through hostile areas.
