Bangui - Muslim Seleka rebels killed three people in a Central African Republic village overnight, residents said on Wednesday.

The fatalities in Ngakobo, in the centre of the country, included an employee at a local sugar factory who was shot dead on his way to work. Injured victims included a woman whose arm was chopped off. The militants prevented factory employees from going to work and looted homes, witnesses told dpa by telephone.

Frightened residents sought refuge at the factory.

CAR has been in turmoil since Seleka overthrew president Francois Bozize, a Christian, in March 2013. About 2 000 French and 6 500 African forces are battling to contain the violence in the former French colony. Thousands of people are reported to have been killed in fighting and about a million displaced.
