Paris (AFP) - The president of the Central African Republic said Tuesday she would ask the UN for a "peacekeeping operation", saying the French and African Union troops already deployed to the crisis-hit country were insufficient.

"Abuses are continuing despite the presence of operation Sangaris and MISCA elements," Catherine Samba Panza said on French radio, referring to the French and African operations.
