Youths in the Central African Republic plundered a mosque in the capital and barricaded streets with burning tires Thursday in protest at an attack by Muslim gunmen on a church that left about a dozen people dead, witnesses said.Those attacks have largely driven Muslims from the capital and other surrounding areas to the north and neighboring countries, effectively partitioning Central African Republic whose northeast is controlled mainly by Muslim rebel forces.Sebastien Wenezoui, a leader of the anti-Balaka, accused international forces of abandoning the church to its attackers and singled out Burundian soldiers among the African peacekeeping force called MISCA as well as French soldiers who he said could have reacted faster to the initial onslaught.
