UN peacekeepers determined to see rule of law in CAR

6 August 2015

UN peacekeepers in the Central African Republic will continue to support authorities in their efforts to improve security despite the killing of a colleague; that’s according to Luis Carrilho, Police Commissioner at the UN mission in the country, known as MINUSCA.

The Cameroonian peacekeeper was killed on Sunday during a search operation for a suspected criminal in the capital, Bangui.

Nine other peacekeepers—one of them his brother—were injured.

Mr Carrilho has been telling Maha Fayek why the rule of law is critical to peace in the Central African Republic.
