Two months after French military intervention in the Central African Republic, French troops and African soldiers have largely disarmed Muslim ex-rebels in the capital, but major atrocities prevail.The French and African troops operate largely in the capital, where the Red Cross last week reported finding 30 bodies in three days, while the Muslim-Christian bloodletting continues in the interior.A priest in the town of Boda, 100 kilometers west of Bangui, Monday told AFP that his parish was sheltering 1,500 people after heavily armed Muslims killed 75 Christians.French troops arrived in mid-January and saved hundreds of Muslims for anti-balaka forces.At Sibut (180 kilometers north of Bangui), ex-Seleka forces agreed to be placed in barracks when French and African troops arrived, but instead the former rebels took advantage of a tremendous storm overnight Saturday to flee.
