BANGUI, Central African Republic (AP) — The president of France is calling on the international community to provide more help to a regional peacekeeping force in the troubled Central African Republic.
President Francois Hollande is calling on the U.N. Security Council to back a plan to authorize logistical and financial support for the effort.
Central African Republic has a long history of chaos and coups, most recently in March.
The peacekeeping force is eventually expected to provide several thousand troops to help secure the country. However, many of the reported massacres are taking place in remote villages far from the chaotic capital where the mission is based.
In a speech to the U.N. General Assembly on Tuesday, Hollande said that civilians are once again the ones suffering in the aftermath of the coup.
