BANGUI (LNC) — That happened on yesterday, in the 3rd district of Bangui, nicknamed by now “the death row”, and currently in the grip of a serious crisis. A patrol from Sangaris dispatched to the scene, but rapidly, it was harassed by a howling crowd of armed young Muslims.
The French patrol came to assess the situation, but it has been targeted by the rebels.
French were rescued by the strong intervention of a Spanish unit of special forces, being part of the EUFOR-RCA operation who opened fire to disperse the attackers.
Spanish troops were six, in two armored tactical vehicles patterned VTLM and LYNX.
After chasing attackers away, Spanishes found two injured among the intruders, and they took them to the international police unit base.
