At least 15 people died in clashes between UN peacekeepers and former rebels in the centre of the chronically restive Central African Republic, a humanitarian source said Sunday.

The violence broke out on Saturday in the market town of Kaga-Bandoro when rebels from the former Seleka movement of mainly Muslim fighters attacked the town “to settle an old score,” a source in MINUSCA, the UN mission which has some 12,000 troops in the country, told AFP.

“They (the former Seleka rebels) were confronted by the Pakistani and Burundian contingents stationed in the town,” the UN source said.

“The MINUSCA forces did their job and protected the civil population” in the town, some 400 kilometres (250 miles) north of the capital Bangui, the source added.
