French Troops Arrive in CAR

Sectarian violence in the landlocked country of the Central African Republic has left over 500 people dead. 

As the killings escalate in the former French colony, French troops have moved in in an attempt to restore peace. U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel announced that the U.S. would provide transport for Burundian troops.
