Central African Republic: 25 people killed in clashes between members of the Popular Front for the Rebirth of the Central African Republic (FPRC) factions in Ndele
At least 25 people have been killed and 51 others wounded in clashes in the northeast of the Central African Republic, according to the country’s communications minister.
Fighting between armed groups in Ndele led to the deaths of 21 civilians, Ange-Maxime Kazigui said on Thursday, adding that “the situation remains confused.”
Humanitarian workers, however, said that members of the Popular Front for the Rebirth of the Central African Republic (FPRC) had clashed in Ndele the previous day.
“The Gula wing of the FPRC attacked the Runga faction” in Ndele on Wednesday, an official from the country’s United Nations mission, known by its French acronym MINUSCA, told AFP news agency on condition of anonymity.
