French peacekeepers in the Central African Republic have escorted a convoy of around 100 Muslims away from the threat of violence in the capital Bangui.

Inter-communal fighting has gripped the country since late 2012 when a power struggle degenerated into violence between Muslims and Christians that has forced about one million people from their homes.
