Approximately "six gendarmes and four civilians were killed Friday morning in an ambush between Grimari to Bambari," UN peacekeeping force MINUSCA said in a communique that reached Xinhua on Saturday. The communique did not provide the identity of the attackers and motive of the attack.
This attack came a day after a bloody raid by suspected ex-rebel force Seleka killed at least 10 habitants and injured a dozen others on Thursday morning in Grimari.
The communique also said the confrontation on Friday between anti-Balaka forces and Seleka in Mbriki and Belima, which are closer to Bambari, left 15 people killed and a number of others wounded.
"MINUSCA also condemns an armed attack conducted Friday afternoon by anti-Balaka against 8 officials," said the communique.
Security situation is deteriorating in CAR, despite expectations for violence to go down after the election in Feb. 14 elected Faustin-Archange Touadera as president to end the 2-year political crisis since Seleka took power in 2013.
