Bangui, Central African Republic - At least 75 people have been killed during clashes in a single town in the strife-torn Central African Republic since Tuesday, a local priest told AFP.

“At least 60 people were killed and many others injured, 15 of whom died of their injuries” in the town of Boda, said Cassien Kamatari on Monday, adding that violence “was still going on” in the municipality some 100 kilometres (62 miles) west of the capital Bangui.
