The U.N mission said in addition to the dead, some 36 people were injured in the clashes.

The rival factions fought over the northeastern town of Bria’s airstrip on Friday and looting forced humanitarian workers to seek refuge inside the MINUSCA base there.

U.N. soldiers have also reinforced their positions in the towns of Bangassou and Alindao, which have been hit by violence this week as well.
