BANGUI, Central African Republic — A priest in Central African Republic says at least 75 people have been killed in one community wracked by sectarian violence.

Father Cassien Kamatari told The Associated Press on Monday that 75 Christians had been killed during fighting over the last five days in the town of Boda.

He said it was not known how many Muslims were killed because they were buried soon after the attacks.

The community is about 60 miles (100 kilometers) west of the capital of Bangui. Some 1,500 people are sheltered at the town's parish while others have fled deep into the countryside.

More than 1,000 people were killed in the capital over several days in December and an untold number have been slain in distant communities like Boda.
