France warns of failed state in CAR

France renews its warnings that the Central African Republic risks becoming a failed state, as it sends in more troops.

    Laurent Fabius travelled to Bangui with Europe's top aid official to boost his campaign for increased international involvement in efforts to end the chaos that has engulfed the country this year.
