Violent aftermath of CAR president's exit

Thirteen killed in violent clashes since President Michel Djotodia resigned at a peace summit in Chad on January 11.

    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 during 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.
