Foreign troops kill seven ex-rebels in C Africa: UN

Foreign soldiers killed seven former rebels of the mainly Muslim Seleka and arrested some 20 others in Bria in the Central African Republic, the United Nations said in a statement. “The toll was seven dead, nine wounded and about 20 arrested from the ex-Seleka, while there were no victims among the international forces,” the UN mission in CAR (MINUSCA) said late on Wednesday. Fighters from the rebel coalition, which seized power in March 2013 for 10 months, were the first to open fire in Tuesday’s battle as UN soldiers backed by French troops moved in to oust them from public buildings they had occupied for months.
