Berlin/Bangui, Central African Republic, March 13, 2008 — A woman was shot dead in a Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) ambulance, Monday, March 10, when an unidentified gunman fired on the vehicle in Vakaga Province in the northeast of the Central African Republic (CAR). As a result, MSF has suspended its mobile clinic activities outside the main towns in the region. This is the second person to be killed in an attack on MSF in the past nine months in CAR. The ambulance was carrying a mother and her baby who had been discharged from the MSF health center in Gordil, a provincial town. The 32-year-old woman leaves behind six children.
