Six hostages killed in CAR by rival groups
Three hostages seized in Central African Republic this week were killed and three more seized later by another group were killed as well, apparently in retaliation, a government spokesman said on Tuesday.
Three officials from the mostly Muslim Seleka alliance were attacked while driving through a neighbourhood controlled by the rival militia on Monday.
Later the same day, three young Christians working in a Muslim enclave of the capital, Bangui, called PK5, were abducted in an apparent act of revenge, residents said.
The twin incidents derailing talks aimed restoring order in tumultuous country.
The Seleka members had been participating in the talks, convened by the interim president of the Central African Republic, Catherine Samba-Panza. risk
