ABIDJAN (Reuters) - Fighting this week between rival Christian and Muslim militias in the Central African Republic town of Bria killed at least 22 people, including 17 civilians, and forced some 10,000 others to flee, the country's United Nations mission said on Saturday.

"The fighting between armed groups in Bria and elsewhere in eastern CAR must stop," said Diane Corner, the deputy head of the peacekeeping mission, MINUSCA, said in a statement.
