    Thousands of Muslims tried to flee the capital of the Central African Republic (CAR) on Friday, only for their mass convoy of cars and trucks to be turned back as crowds of angry Christians taunted: "We're going to kill you all."

    The drama unfolded as Amnesty International said it had uncovered evidence of a fresh massacre in a village where the sole surviving Muslim was an orphaned girl aged about 11, and France said it would send an extra 400 peacekeeping troops.

    Some cars were crammed with as many as 10 people as the convoy made its way through Bangui, the second such attempt to escape in a week, the Associated Press reported. Christians gathered along the road to shout abuse and threats.

    The convoy was turned back because African peacekeepers feared it would come under attack in some volatile parts of Bangui. The desperate procession was halted in the Miskine neighbourhood, where one vehicle tumbled into a ditch on the side of the road.

    On the orders of a Burundian captain, the peacekeepers went from vehicle to vehicle instructing everyone to return to a local mosque, according to an AP journalist at the scene.

    Lieutenant Rosana Nsengimana, of the African peacekeeping force known as Misca, said: "The convoy escorted by Burundian forces returned to its departure point because of a problem in a neighbourhood on the north end of the city where the Muslims would have had to pass through."

    The neighbourhood in question witnessed fresh fighting on Friday with at least one person killed in a grenade attack by Christian militiamen, according to witnesses at a nearby mosque. French peacekeepers had to rescue two other severely injured people from an baying crowd that had set tyres on fire and was shouting anti-Muslim and anti-French slogans.

    Hmm. Way to put a spin which (coincidentally?I think not. smile ) supports your agenda onto a conflict. Well done ED.

      A spin? An agenda of conflict? Obviously, you didn't read the article and are just trolling again.

        I did read the article. It appears you knew nothing of the conflict, prior to running across that article; nor cared enough for the plight of those people to attempt to find out anything else.

        Trolling...indeed. But, who's the troll? I think it's obvious.

          Christians killing Muslims. Are you in favor of the Christians? It appears so. Keep on trolling.

            I'm not in favor of anything going on there right now. However, learn something about current events prior to attempting to make judgments that are not in line with facts, and attempting to paint those events with a tainted brush. You are attempting to imply that the Christian religion is somehow responsible for this tragedy. It is not.  You can bandy about the term troll all that you like. You are the one who fits that definition here.

            Unless, you are a yellow journalist and then I guess you are purposely doing this. In that event.....well done.

              Oh, I see now, it is entirely coincidental we have Christians fighting against Muslims. Oh Emile, you're quite the comedian. lol

                These people are fighting because they choose to. Not because they are Christians.

                Just like an American soldier fights because they choose to. Not because they are an American.

                  lol Yes, It's just a complete coincidence the Christians are slaughtering the Muslims for revenge of the Muslims slaughtering the Christians. They choose to slaughter each other, just for fun.

                    It doesn't matter why they choose to do it. The fact remains, it's still a choice. No one forced them to do it. A person can use anything as an excuse.

                    I'm saying they didn't kill anyone BECAUSE they are a Muslim or a Christian.

                    Are you?

    It's just the evolutionary process (survival of the fittest) working itself out.

    It's the way to bring the population numbers down, so the resources are not completely depleted.

    Natural selection at work, me thinks. big_smile

      If that were true, why do we not see this in secular societies?
