联合国安理会对于星期二两位摩洛哥籍联合国维和部队人员在中非共和国被打死表达“最强烈的”谴责。

当时,联合国维和人员在护送运输燃料车队的途中遭到袭击,不明身份的袭击者后来逃入灌木丛。

联合国安理会星期三发表声明说:“针对维和部队人员的袭击有可能构成战争罪”,并且强调“袭击者最终会被绳之以法”。

中非共和国自2013年就陷入混乱,穆斯林反政府力量推翻了博齐泽总统,控制了这个基督教徒占人口多数的国家。

联合国2013年12月派遣约1万3千维和部队前往中非,主要任务是保护当地民众。

U.N. Strongly Condemns Killing of Two Peacekeepers in Central African Republic

The United Nations Security Council has condemned "in the strongest terms" Tuesday's killing of two Moroccan U.N. peacekeepers in the Central African Republic.

The peacekeepers were killed as they accompanied fuel when they were attacked by unknown assailants who fled into the bush.

In a statement released Wednesday, the council said "attacks targeting peacekeepers may constitute a war crime" and "stressed that those responsible for the attack shall be held accountable."

The Central African Republic has been mired in chaos since 2013 when Muslim rebels took control of the majority Christian nation and ousted then-President Francois Bozize.

In December of that year, the U.N. dispatched about 13,000 peacekeepers to the country with the primary responsibility of protecting the population.
