Locals in Central African Republic are blaming Seleka rebels for the deaths of more than 30 people in the past several weeks.

Hundreds more have been injured in violence in the capital Bangui, residents say.

Locals say the attackers spoke Arabic and were members of the Seleka rebel movement, an armed group that took control of the country in a coup last March.
