Four killed in CAR protest against UN peacekeepers

Four civilians were killed and 14 other people injured in Central African Republic on Monday when UN peacekeepers exchanged fire with armed men during a protest against the UN military presence, the United Nations said.

The clashes occurred as hundreds of protesters gathered to call for troops from the UN mission (MINUSCA) to leave the country. A Reuters witness saw protesters, carrying anti-UN posters, throwing stones and shouting at the troops who responded with warning shots.

There was then an exchange of gunfire between the troops and armed men near the crowd.
