Hundreds dead in violent week in Central African Republic

Christians from the village of Bouebou, some 40 kms (30 miles) North of Bangui, Central African Republic, load up on a taxi as they flee sectarian violence Wednesday Dec. 4, 2013. Over 500 villagers have fled towards the capital Bangui fearing repression from Seleka fighters following the killing of Muslim residents by the Anti-Balaka militias Monday Dec. 2 nearby. The UN security council is scheduled to pass a motion allowing French troops to deploy in the country in order to protect civilians and insure security by all necessary means.
