10 Civilians killed by Rebels in the Central African Republic, UN Says

Rebels killed 10 civilians during an attack hundreds of kilometers northeast of the Central African Republic capital of Bangui, the spokesperson for the U.N. peacekeeping force in the country told AFP.

The Central African Republic, the second least developed country in the world, according to the U.N., has been the scene of a civil war since 2013. At the end of 2020, the most powerful of the many armed groups that then shared two-thirds of the territory had launched an offensive on Bangui shortly before the elections and Touadera sought help from Moscow for his impoverished army.

They had previously attacked security force positions, he added, without elaborating. In response to these atrocities, the force immediately deployed Mauritanian blue helmets to protect the populations," Ouedraogo added.
