CAR Leader: Looting, Revenge Attacks Over

Around 20 percent of the population have left their home


Relative calm has returned to the streets of the Central African Republic (CAR) capital Bangui after weeks of sectarian clashes, with banks, offices and markets re-opening.

The country's interim leader said the days of looting and revenge attacks were over.

The city has been riven by sectarian clashes in recent months.

About 20% of the 4.6 million population are said to have fled their homes, amid warnings of a humanitarian catastrophe.
