Three French soldiers were wounded when fighters attacked them with grenades and an anti-tank missile in Central African Republic's capital, the army said, more than a year after a coup plunged the impoverished country into sectarian violence.Paris said its troops came under fire Wednesday as they patrolled Bangui's PK-5 neighborhood, home to about 2,000 Muslims who have braved assaults by Christian militias and resisted pressure to disarm.The French force was caught up in fighting between militias and the country's separate European Union force (EUFOR), which locals had accused of shooting a man dead.
