Three people were killed and six wounded in Central African Republic on Monday when UN peacekeepers exchanged fire with armed men during a protest against the UN military presence, the local Red Cross said.

The dead and wounded were among hundreds of protesters gathered to call for the UN troops to leave the country, Antoine Mbao-Bogo, president of the CAR Red Cross, said. A UN spokesman said at least four peacekeepers had been wounded.



A Reuters witness saw protesters, carrying anti-UN posters, throwing stones and shouting at the troops who responded with warning shots. There was then an exchange of gunfire between the troops and armed men near the crowd.
