Fighting in the capital of strife-torn Central African Republic has killed at least 30 people over the past three days, the International Committee of the Red Cross said on Friday.

Thirty bodies have been collected from the streets of the capital, the head of the ICRC delegation Georgios Georgantas said, adding that he was very concerned by the "unprecedented level of violence" that has also left at least 60 people wounded.
