Deadly clashes erupt in C.Africa as French minister visits

France’s defence minister warned Monday that violence in the Central African Republic was becoming “more serious” as he started a visit to the former French colony, amid reports of more deadly clashes. Jean-Yves Le Drian said political efforts to end the bloody conflict have stalled despite the election of a new leader six months ago, and the deadlock has further inflamed tensions between Christians and Muslims. Central Africa’s transitional president Catherine Samba Panza took power in February in a bid to end the deadly sectarian violence, which erupted when the mainly Muslim Seleka alliance seized power in a March 2013 coup.
