WASHINGTON — Violence in the capital city of Bangui killed 6 Chadian peacekeepers and littered the streets of the streets with bodies.
Reuters reported that the Red Cross recovered 44 bodies from the war-torn city streets after religious factions began to fight once again. The Red Cross said that this was only a fraction of the bodies in the streets because of limited access due to rising violence in the city.
African peacekeepers and French troops were sent to the country to keep civil war at bay, which pits the Muslim Seleka rebels to the Christian self-defense militia. The Muslims took power this past March and now have engaged with Christian militias in sporadic fighting.
France has intervened in Africa again, after saving former colony Mali from Islamist rebels that nearly took control of the country.
