Looting and violence ravage CAR

Thirteen people killed in clashes after President Michel Djotodia's decision to step down two days ago.

    Joy over the departure of former President Michel Djotodia has quickly turned to violence in the Central African Republic, with widespread looting in the capital Bangui.

    Thirteen people have been killed in the city over the past two nights.

    Djotodia stepped down on January 11 and travelled to Benin a day later to live in exile.

    Al Jazeera's Barnaby Phillips reports from Bangui.
