BANGUI (Reuters) - Four people were wounded in the capital of Central African Republic on Thursday when a mainly Christian militia group attacked the largely Muslim neighborhood of PK-5, a community leader told Reuters.

A witness later said gunfire died down amid heavy rain. Inter-communal violence surged in Bangui in late September after the murder of a Muslim man, and 77 people were killed and 400 injured.
