Central African Soldiers

Soldiers patrol on December 5, 2013 in a street of Bangui as shots rang out and blasts from heavy weapons rocked several districts of the Central African capital this morning amid communal tensions ahead of a UN vote authorising force to stop the country's descent into chaos. The incidents came as the UN Security Council was set to vote today on a measure authorising thousands of African and French troops to end anarchy in the Central African Republic, where massacres have led to warnings of genocide-style strife.
