Daily Trust - - INTERNATIONAL -

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
