In this June 17, 2011 photo, journalist James Foley receives applause from students at the Christa McAuliffe Regional Charter Public School in Framingham, Mass. Foley had been released a month prior after being detained for six weeks in Libya. Students at the school had written government leaders to work for his release.

French soldiers stand in front of protesters demonstrating against French troops in BambariThree French soldiers were wounded when fighters attacked them with grenades and an anti-tank missile in Central African Republic's capital, the army said, more than a year after a coup plunged the impoverished country into sectarian violence. Paris said its troops came under fire on Wednesday as they patrolled Bangui's PK-5 neighbourhood, home to about 2,000 Muslims who have braved assaults by Christian militias and resisted pressure to disarm. The French force was caught up in fighting between militias and the country's separate European Union force (EUFOR), which locals had accused of shooting a man dead. Paris sent more troops into its former colony after Seleka, a coalition of mostly Muslim rebels and some fighters from neighbouring Chad and Sudan, seized power in March 2013.
