Rebels Ambush, Kill 2 Russian Mercenaries In Central African Republic

Two Russian mercenaries of the Wagner Security Group were killed on Sunday, Nov. 14, in an ambush by rebels of the Return, Reclamation and Rehabilitation (3R).

Two Russian mercenaries of the Wagner Security Group were killed  on Sunday, Nov. 14, in an ambush by rebels of the Return, Reclamation and Rehabilitation (3R) who are members of the Coalition of Patriots for Change (CPC) in the Kaita sector.

Kaita sector is  situated 15 kilometres from Mann on the Koui highway.

According to local security sources, at about 2 p.m. on Sunday, the Russian mercenaries who were from the Koui sub prefecture attacked a 3R rebel position, killing one combatant and wounding another one.

“About three kilometres to the village of Mbae-Mbere, they fell in an ambush laid by 3R rebels who succeeded in killing two of them,” the sources revealed.


One local elected official who opted for anonymity told HumAngle that the rebels seized heavy duty arms from the Russians.

On the night of Tuesday, Oct. 26, an armed gang later identified as 3R fighters assimilated to the CPC attacked Akita village,  killing a father of seven who was identified as Albert Ndoh. They also burnt two houses and a motorcycle.
