Chadian soldiers trying to disarm rebels in the landlocked country have been accused of siding with the mainly Muslim Seleka.
On Monday, as anger mounted, peacekeepers fired on a crowd protesting against the presence of the Chadian troops in the mostly Christian capital, Bangui.
Now Chadian peacekeepers have been redeployed from Bangui to try diffuse tension.
