Fighting over CAR diamonds kills at least 21

“At least 21 people have been killed in running gun clashes between two former rebel groups seeking control of a diamond-mining area in Central African Republic, sources told Reuters on Monday.

The fighting, which began early last week between members of the former rebel groups UFDR and CPJP in the town of Bria 600 km (360 miles) from the capital Bangui, risks escalating into a broader tribal conflict with reports of fighters going house-to-house hunting ethnic rivals.”
