Thirty-seven killed in C.Africa clashes: UN

AFP  |  Bangui (Central African Republic) 

Thirty-seven bodies were found Friday in the central town of Alindao after clashes between armed groups, the UN mission in the perennially restive Central African Republic said.

"Thirty-seven deaths confirmed in Alindo," said a report seen by AFP.

An earlier report spoke of seven deaths in clashes on Thursday when Christian militiamen known as anti-balaka killed Muslims, prompting revenge attacks in which a priest was killed and a church torched.
