2 more peacekeepers killed in C. African Republic
A Christian resident of the Gobongo neighborhood celebrates as trucks pass carrying fleeing Muslims out of Bangui, Central African Republic, Friday, Dec. 27, 2013. French troops surrounded one broken down vehicle to protect it from the hostile crowd. In recent days, passenger vehicles carrying panicked Muslims toward the northern edge of town have repeatedly come under attack by anti-balaka militiamen in this area, 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.
