UN Peacekeepers Attacked As CAR Prepares for Polls

The attacks on peacekeepers from the United Nations mission in the country and national security forces took pace in Dékoa, Kémo Prefecture, and Bakouma, Mbomou Prefecture. UN Secretary-General António Guterres said attacks against UN peacekeepers may constitute a war crime. The killings took place two days ahead of Sunday's first-round vote to elect the President and National Assembly.
