BANGUI, Dec 5 (Reuters) - At least 105 people have been killed during fighting in Central African Republic's capital on Thursday, according to a Reuters witness and an aid worker.

A Reuters correspondent counted 53 bodies at a mosque in Bangui's PK5 neighbourhood. Most of the victims appeared to have been clubbed or hacked to death, the correspondent said.
