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.
