Bangui (Central African Republic) (AFP) - Terrified Bangui residents anxiously waited for French troops to secure the city on Sunday before emerging from their homes after a wave of sectarian violence killed hundreds. The French force received a triumphant welcome on Saturday as it deployed across other parts of the Central African Republic in a bid to stem the chaos that has gripped the country since a March coup. The communal strife that has wracked the Central African bush for months flared in Bangui on Thursday, killing nearly 400 people. "We have counted 394 dead in the last three days," French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said on France 3 television.
