UN chief warns against aiding Central African Republic militias

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) – U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon warned on Monday against any support or facilitation of violence by armed groups in Central African Republic after Chadian troops were accused of opening fire on civilians and killing at least 10 people at the weekend.

The shooting on Saturday was the latest in a string of violent incidents involving Chadian troops, who Central African Republic’s anti-balaka Christian militia accuse of siding with Muslims and Seleka rebels and preying upon the local Christians.
