Security Council slams attacks on blue helmets in vehicleā€¯

"The President of the AU Commission, Moussa Faki Mahamat, strongly condemns the despicable attacks by armed assailants on 8 and 13 May 2017 in Bangassou, in the south-east of the Central African Republic (RCA), and in the vicinity of this locality, against the MINUSCA, resulting in several deaths and injuries among peacekeepers", the AU said in a statement.

The militants have also been targetting United Nations base in the area, prompting the deployment of extra troops to the remote town in anticipation of further attacks. However credible sources have confirmed an undetermined number of civilian casualties, MINUSCA said.

The U.N. Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in the Central African Republic, or MINUSCA, says it is sending reinforcements to Bangassou where it says displaced civilians are seeking refuge in a mosque, a Catholic church and a Doctors Without Borders hospital.
