Tensions high between UN forces, Russian mercenaries in C.African Republic

Tensions between Russian-controlled Wagner mercenaries and UN peacekeepers are still running high in the Central African Republic (CAR), a few days after the attempted arrest of a military official in the country, local media reported on Monday

Suspected of selling arms and ammunition to young people in the central town of Bria, a captain of the country's national army was pursued and nearly arrested by Russian mercenaries from the Wagner company.

The captain is currently in hiding, according to a CAR-based information agency, Corbeau News Centrafrique.

The security situation has forced many people to flee Bria to the capital Bangui.
