A widower ate a part of a man’s leg in a horrifying revenge attack in the Central African Republic (CAR), it’s emerged.

The man told the BBC he took part in the attack after Muslims had killed his pregnant wife, sister-in-law and her baby.

A mob of around 20 youths, including the widower, forced a bus to stop in the capital Bungui, and dragged a Muslim from it, according to the broadcaster. Their victim was then beaten, stabbed and set on fire. Footage seen by theBBC reportedly shows the widower eating the man’s leg.
