CAR conflict: 'Foreign soldiers helped avert the genocide'

Former Central African Republic interim President Michel Djotodia has arrived in Benin, where it is thought he will go into exile.

He resigned his post on Friday, at a summit aimed at ending the ongoing sectarian violence.

Mr Djotodia's resignation, and that of his Prime Minister Nicolas Tiengaye, appear to have failed to quell the violence in the CAR's capital, Bangui.

Paul Wood reports.
