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.

    France's foreign minister has pledged more troops during a visit to the Central African Republic but also warned the coup leader there to stick to his own promise of free polls in early 2015. 

    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.
