Bangui, Central African Republic, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 1st Aug, 2021 ) :Rebels killed six civilians and wounded several others Saturday in an attack on a village in the northeast of the volatile Central African Republic, the UN peacekeeping mission said.
"This morning at dawn elements from the 3R (Return, Reclamation, Rehabilitation) launched a large-scale attack against C.African army positions in the village of Mann," the spokesman for the UN's MINUSCA mission said.
"Six civilians were killed and several wounded," he added.
President Faustin Archange Touadera was re-elected in December on a turnout of fewer than one in three voters.
The ballot was hampered by armed groups that at the time controlled around two-thirds of the country, and rebels mounted an offensive in the runup to polling day.
