130 die in CAR violence
KINSHASA: The resurgence of violence between armed groups in parts of the Central African Republic has left more than 130 civilians dead, 600 homes burned and thousands displaced.
The militancy is characterised by brutal attacks and killings and targets civilians and humanitarian workers. It has led to refugees from the conflict in the Democratic Republic of the Congo fleeing back to their country.
Djerassem Mbaiorem, a spokesperson of the UN High Commission for Refugees, said violence had impacted on Congolese refugees living in a camp in Zemio, which was invaded by armed men in recent days. ANA-CAJ
