Clashes evolved in Central African Republic recently.
The clashes were as a result of the killing of an army officer according to United Nations peace keeping mission in the country.

Nation gathered that in Bangui's PK5 neighbourhood, a Muslim enclave in the majority Christian nation's capital witnessed serious fighting after the Former Aide to ex - president Catherine Samba-Panza was shot dead in his car.

Reuters reported that Central African Republic has been plagued by inter-religious violence since 2013 when mainly Muslim Seleka fighters seized power, prompting reprisals from Christian militias, known as anti-balaka.

“At this stage we think (the victims) are all civilians, excluding the army officer who was killed first,” said UN mission spokesman, Herve Verhoosel.
