Violence spread through Central African capital

BANGUI (CIHAN)- The violence spread throughout Bangui, capital of Central African Republic on Thursday (29 May), with reported skirmishes, barricaded roads, burned tires and lit bonfires across the city.

Businesses remained closed and daily activities came to a standstill while young men armed with machetes roamed the streets.

In a statement today Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon strongly condemned the recent attacks in the Central African Republic, including yesterday at the Church of Notre Dame de Fatima in Bangui in which an unknown number of people, including the priest, were killed and others were abducted.

The attack follows violence in the capital earlier in the week during which three Muslim youths were brutally killed by suspected anti-Balaka elements on their way to an inter-communal reconciliation football match.
