Three United Nations peacekeepers from Bangladesh were killed and a fourth seriously wounded when their vehicle was hit by an explosive device in the Central African Republic, UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric said Tuesday.
He said the blast happened "when the troops were on patrol in the Koui-Bohong axis, about five kilometers (three miles) from the mission's temporary base in Ouham-Pende prefecture."
The former French colony, one of the poorest countries in the world, was plunged into civil war in 2013.
