The Washington Times Daily - - WORLD -

BANGUI | Clashes be­tween a mili­tia and a self-de­fense group in south­east­ern Cen­tral African Re­pub­lic have left at least 30 civil­ians dead in­clud­ing six Red Cross vol­un­teers who were at­tend­ing a cri­sis meet­ing at a health fa­cil­ity, of­fi­cials said Wed­nes­day.

The vi­o­lence took place late last week in the town of Gambo, which is about 47 miles from Ban­gas­sou, a town that has been a flash point amid the up­surge of blood­shed in the long chaotic coun­try. The deaths marked the third such at­tack on the Red Cross this year, of­fi­cials said.
