Five Chadian peacekeepers have died in clashes in the Central African Republic capital, where French troops on Thursday were out in force a day after heavy gunfire sowed panic in the city.
The circumstances of the Chadian deaths in Bangui, which occurred on Wednesday as chaos and fighting gripped the city, were unclear, a spokesman of the African Union force of which they were part told AFP.
"Yesterday the city was in total chaos and this chaos lasted until the end of the night. Today we are trying to understand what happened," said Eloi Yao.
