Central African Republic: Three UN peacekeepers killed, others Injured in roadside bomb attack

Three United Nations soldiers were killed and several others injured after a roadside bomb explosion in the Central African Republic, the UN peacekeeping mission there said.

The bomb attack happened on Monday at Kaita village in the north-west near the Cameroonian border, the UN mission, Minusca, said late on Tuesday.

The peacekeepers had been carrying out a patrol when one of their vehicles hit the explosive device, killing the Bangladeshi peacekeepers, it said in a statement.

The head of UN peacekeeping, Jean-Pierre Lacroix, sent his condolences to Bangladesh and families of the soldiers killed in the attack.

No group has been blamed for the attack, but Minusca said it had launched investigations into the incident.
