BAMBARI (LNC) — According to News, aired by the National Radio, at least 22 people were killed in CAR this week, in a string of raids on villages, a local official said on Friday (today).
Local administrator Yves Mbetigaza detailed what happened.
“Gunmen cut the throats of 10 people in the village of Ndassima on Monday, before carrying out an overnight attack nearby in Mala.”
“They came from two places, some from Bambari and others from Mbres,” he added.
While a report on national radio described the attackers only as armed members of the Peul ethnic group, Mbetigaza on the reverse said “they were Seleka fighters”, adding that “eight villagers were kidnapped in Mala and dozens of others were missing.”
“Six hunters were killed on Thursday in the village of Bandambou”, Mbetigaza completed.
The killings put the death toll from violence this week at over 30.
And though dozens have died in “inter-religious” fighting in Bangui since late September, the village raids highlight the rampant insecurity that plagues much of the countryside.
