6 Killed In CAR Grenade Attack
Six people were killed and about 10 injured on Friday in a grenade attack in Bangui, the Central African Republic, CAR, capital.
An eyewitness account said the attackers wore uniforms of Burundian peacekeepers, but they were suspected to be disguised local and Chadian Islamist extremists.
The grenade was hurled at a group of people mourning a person who had been given a funeral the day before.
The fatalities involve the same family which included a two-year-old child, a pregnant woman and an elderly man.
Hospital sources confirmed that six bodies had been placed in the morgue, while other survivors with various degrees of injuries were being treated.
