UN peacekeepers kill 3 protesters in Central African Republic

BANGUI - Three people were killed and six wounded in Central African Republic's capital Bangui on Monday when UN peacekeepers exchanged fire during a protest against the UN mission, the local Red Cross said.


The dead and wounded were among hundreds of protesters gathered to call for the UN troops to leave the country, Antoine Mbao-Bogo, president of the CAR Red Cross, said.


A Reuters witness saw protesters, carrying anti-UN posters, throwing stones and shouting at the troops who responded with warning shots. There was then an exchange of gunfire between the troops and men who were allegedly armed near the crowd.
