CAR: murders

A minister’s brother and nephew were killed in mid-May, possibly because the minister was head of the country’s Evangelical Alliance and was noted for his peacekeeping efforts.

An aid worker said: ‘Two or three ex-Séléka rebels – who have been in the town of Alindao for years and who knew Nicolas’ youngest brother very well – came to his home, and when his older son came out to meet them, one of them stabbed him twice. When Nicolas’ brother heard his son’s scream, he rushed out to see what was happening. That was when the other man shot him four times.’
