3R Rebels Kill Father, Injure Son In Central African Republic

Dim has been under repeated attacks from the rebels who took advantage of no military presence.

A man was reported killed and his son wounded in an attack by rebels of the Return, Reclamation and Rehabilitation (3R) in the locality of Zoro, situated 10km to Dim on the Ngaoundaye highway.

According to local sources, the incident happened on Sunday night by an armed gang suspected to be combatants of the 3R rebel movement which is affiliated to the Coalition of Patriots for Change (CPC).

The wounded boy, whose situation was reported to be very preoccupying, was taken to the Ngaoundaye hospital for treatment while the body of his father was buried in his village.

Meanwhile, the same 3R rebels were reported to have arrested several traders in Letete, situated 17 kilometres from Bocaranga on the Dim highway in the southeast of the country.

The rebels also burnt five motorbikes seized from the traders.

The security situation in the area has become, unstable forcing the populations to call on the government to deploy forces of law and order to the zone to reassure the inhabitants of their safety.

One month ago, soldiers of the Central African Republic based in Bang, Dim and Letete were withdrawn from the zone due to the lack of logistics, thus exposing the area to repeated attacks by rebel groups.
