Hollande visits CAR for talks after increasing violence

The President of France, Francois Hollande, has visited the Central African Republic for talks with the transitional leadership, after two French soldiers were killed in the capital Bangui.

They were among 1,600 French troops who have been deployed in the country in an attempt to disarm militia groups who have been fighting since a Muslim faction seized power in the country in March.
