Clashes between rival armed groups in Bria, a strategic town in eastern Central African Republic, have left dozens of dead, a senior official said on Tuesday.

“There are about 50 dead . Some bodies were immediately buried by relatives, so it is difficult to give a precise figure, ” said the prefect of Haute -Kotto department, Evariste Binguinidji.

The clashes are the latest test to a nearly year – old agreement aimed at bringing peace to the CAR, a country torn by militia violence.
