BANGUI, Central African Republic (AP) — An international aid organization says it has treated more than 24 people for machete and gunshot wounds in the latest in a series of attacks in Central African Republic.
Medecins Sans Frontieres, or Doctors Without Borders, said Wednesday that the fighting happened Monday in the village of Bouca. It said that among the wounded were six children.
It said residents fled into the countryside after their homes were set ablaze.
Bouca is about 62 miles (100 kilometers) from the town of Bossangoa, where the government said 60 people were recently killed in fighting.
Violence has flared across the country's remote northwest following a coup in March that put Seleka rebels in charge of the country.
Some fighting also has been blamed on fighters loyal to ousted President Francois Bozize.
