Six aid workers killed in C Africa

Unknown attackers have killed six humanitarian workers including one from the United Nations children's fund Unicef in the northwest of the Central African Republic, the UN said Wednesday.

The world body's Minusca mission "condemned the attack which led to the death of the six humanitarian workers including one from Unicef," on Sunday at Markounda.

Markounda has been plagued with violence since the end of last year as the National Movement for the Liberation of Central Africa and the Revolution and Justice party battle for domination.

"We are deeply saddened and shocked by the death of our colleague as well as the five other education workers on February 25," said Unicef regional director for west and central Africa Marie-Pierre Poirier.
