Sixteen people were killed in two days of clashes between Fulani herdsmen and the mainly Muslim Seleka militia in northern Central African Republic, a police source told AFP on Tuesday.
"According to an initial toll, 16 people, most of them armed Fulani herdsmen, were killed and more than 20 others were wounded in the clashes," said police officer in the northern town of Kaga Bandoro who asked to remain anonymous.
The clashes began on Sunday and were not connected with a separate wave of violence in the capital, Bangui, on Monday in which three people were killed.
