UN police investigating ‘hideous crime’ as 9 displaced civilians are killed in Central African Republic

Perpetrators behind the killing of nine mostly-female civilians displaced by conflict in the Central African Republic (CAR), must be brought to justice, the UN peacekeeping operation in the country said on Friday.

The mission, known by the French acronym MINUSCA, has strongly condemned the incident, which occurred on Thursday in the town of Bria.

Spokesperson for the Mission, Vladimir Monteiro told Cristina Silveiro of UN News, what they know so far.
