UN authorizes military action by African and French troops in the CAR

The U.N. Security Council has authorized increased military action by France and African troops to try to end near-anarchy in the Central African Republic.

The council unanimously approved a French-sponsored resolution on Thursday aimed at restoring security and protecting civilians in the impoverished country.

The authorization is expected to lead to an increase in troops for an African Union-led force and French troops.

The nation has seen an upsurge in Muslim-Christian violence along with widespread killings, torture and rapes.
