Russian journalists killed in Central African Republic


Three Russian journalists, who were covering the activities of the Moscow based mercenary group’s activities in the Central African Republic, has been brutally killed.

At this moment, it is not clear who was behind the attack. It is identified that the journalists were killed in a sudden or unexpected attack. Such attacks are normally carried out by the rebel groups, which rule the majority of the regions of the Central African Republic.

There are several rebel groups active in the country. At present, it is very difficult to find who is behind the attack.

Most of the rebel groups are very angry with Russia, as Moscow is the only western country which protects the ruling regime of the CAR.

Several years before, Russia inked a deal with the CAR. As per the deal, Russia is supposed to train the CAR official military force.

There are allegations that the CAR regime offered several precious gold, diamond and uranium mines to Russia in return of their protection as part of the deal.

There are reports that the killed journalists were covering the activities of those groups which were doing economical activities in the African country.

Russia has not released the identities of the murdered journalists. An investigation is on.
