By Emmanuel Braun BANGUI (Reuters) - A militia group has killed 27 Muslims in a village in the Central African Republic, the United Nations said on Friday, in an attack underscoring the difficulties faced by French troops in stabilising their former colony. The Christian militia, known as anti-Balaka, killed the Muslims on Thursday in Bohong, a village about 75 km (47 miles) from the far western town of Bouar, the U.N. Human Rights office said. Mostly Muslim Seleka rebels seized power in March, ousting President Francois Bozize. Christian militia and gunmen loyal to Bozize attacked the capital last week, triggering fresh killings and reprisals.
