At least 22 people, including 15 local chiefs and three local members of staff from medical charity Medecins Sans Frontieres, have been killed in an attack on a town in Central African Republic, officials said on Sunday.

Most of the casualties died when an MSF-run clinic in the town was attacked while local chiefs were holding a meeting there.
