Clashes in the Central African Republic capital

Yahoo NewsNovember 29, 2013

Muslim rebels stormed a Catholic church compound in the capital of Central African Republic on Wednesday, killing at least 30 people in a hail of gunfire and grenades, witnesses said.

The attack on the compound at the Church of Fatima, where hundreds of civilians had sought refuge from the violence ravaging Bangui's streets, is the largest blamed on Muslim fighters since their Seleka coalition was ousted from power nearly five months ago. (AP)
