In the Central African Republic, ten Egyptian peacekeepers were wounded when they were shot at by security guards from President Faustin-Archange Touadera. About it it says in the communiqué of the UN peacekeeping mission MINUSCA. Of the ten wounded, two are in serious condition.
It follows from the document that the peacekeepers were fired upon in the afternoon of November 1, shortly after they arrived in the CAR as part of the rotation. The peacekeepers were on their way from Bangui airport to their base and were passing 120 meters from the presidential palace when they opened fire without warning. At that moment, the peacekeepers were unarmed.
Trying to get out of the shelling zone as soon as possible, the bus driver with the peacekeepers shot down a woman to death.
MINUSCA representatives offered condolences to the family of the deceased and began negotiations with the CAR government, seeking an investigation into the incident. The UN communiqué describes the incident as a deliberate attack that cannot be justified.
