As Central African Republic faces threat of genocide, 6,000-strong International Support Mission aims to quell violence.

    A new African peacekeeping force is about to move into action in the Central African Republic, which has been gripped by unrest since President Michel Djotodia stormed to power in a March coup.

    Fighting has broken out between militia loyal to him, and others who support the former president.
