22 killed by gunmen at C. Africa DWB hospital

BANGUI, Central African Republic -- At least 22 people including three staff members of medical charity Doctors Without Borders were killed during a weekend attack by gunmen on a Central African hospital, in the latest atrocity to hit the violence-plagued country.

The brutal attack in the northwest was blamed on the mostly Muslim rebels known as the Seleka, whose coup in March last year unleashed a vicious cycle of sectarian violence.

“Armed men from the ex-Seleka and of Fula ethnicity on Saturday afternoon attacked a hospital supported by MSF in the region of Nanga Boguila, killing at least 22 people, including three Central African employees of MSF and leaving a dozen wounded,” an officer from the African-led MISCA peacekeeping force told AFP on Monday.
