“The rebels were pushed back into the bush, and the residents of Bambari who had fled began to return,” the UN peacekeeping mission in the CAR (MINUSCA) spokesperson Abdoulaziz Fall said.
On Tuesday, Union for Peace in the Central African Republic (UPC) rebels captured Bambari and looted the police station and gendarmerie brigade there.
The rebels also took over a military base located behind the city hall of Bambari, deserted by the CAR army. Reports said no loss of civilian life were recorded.
