Gunmen attacked an evacuation convoy carrying hundreds of Muslims north from Central African Republic's capital on Monday, killing at least two people, according to a Reuters witness and an African Union peacekeeping official.The 1,300 Muslims were being escorted from Bangui by foreign peacekeepers to move them from attacks by Christian militia after a spiral of bloodletting that followed Muslim rebels seizing office and then being forced to cede power themselves.Major Patrick Sibobugingo, a spokesman for the African Union peacekeeping force known as MISCA, said six other people were injured in the attack on the convoy, part of an evacuation that has been criticised by the country's interim government.
