    Six 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 capital.

    An eyewitness account said the attackers wore uniforms of Burundian peacekeepers, but they were suspected to be local and Chadian Islamist extremists disguised as peacekeepers.

    It said the grenade was hurled at a group of people mourning a person who had been given a funeral the day before.

    The fatalities belonged to 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 attended to.
