Violent clashes in
UNITED NATIONS (AP) -
The U.N. Security Council on
a nearly 12,000-strong U.N.
peacekeeping force for Central
African Republic, where mount-
ing violence between Christians
and Muslims has brought kill-
ings, torture and sexual violence.
The 10,000 U.N. troops and
1,800 police will take over from
5,000 African Union soldiers -
but not until Sept. 15. A separate
2,000-strong French force in the
Central African Republic was
authorized to use "all necessary
means" to support the new U.N.
How much protection U.N.
troops will be able to offer is an
open question. Keeping civil-
ians safe throughout the Cen-
tral African Republic, especially
in rural areas, is already prov-
ing a difficult, if not impossible,
task. The country is the size of
Texas, many roads have not been
repaved since independence
from France in 1960, and many
of the people escaping violence
have fled into the bush.
The country has been in chaos
since a March 2013 coup, when
mostly Muslim rebels seized
power and set up a brutal regime.
Christian militiamen attacked
rebel strongholds in early
December. As the rebel govern-
ment crumbled in January, the
Christian militiamen stepped
up the violence, forcing tens of
thousands of Muslims to flee.
On the streets of the Central
African Republic's capital, Ban-
gui, reactions to the U.N. deploy-
ment were muted.
Cyrius Zemangui-Kette, 25,
who is unemployed, said U.N.
troops should have been sent in
long ago, but the international
community dragged its feet and
now things have gotten worse.
"They say they'll arrive in Sep-
tember," he said. "Until then, lots
of Central Africans will continue
to die, so who are they coming to

commemoration of the 1994

the U.N. force must be part of
"a long-term strategy to bring
peace to our country."
Clashes between Christian
and Muslim fighters in the cen-
tral town of Dekoa that began
Tuesday have left at least 30
people dead, a priest said Thurs-
day. Most of the victims were
civilians, killed by Muslims who
fired into a crowd of people they
mistook for Christian militants,
Father Everaldo De Suza of the
Saint Anne parish said. A Chris-
tian commander confirmed the
fighting but denied that his forc-
es had started it.
