Bengui, Central African Republic - December 6, 2013. Internally displaced people gather at Bangui's airport, seeking protection from French forces one day after gun battle between Seleka soldiers and Christian militias left over 100 dead and scores wounded. To try to put an end to sectarian violence, the UN security council passed a motion allowing French troops to deploy in the country in order to protect civilians and insure security by all means necessary.
