Victims of Chinese armed attack in Central African Republic will not be repatriated, confirms police

The police of the Central African Republic announced that the remains of Chinese citizens who died in an armed attack on the country last March will not be returned to China, as they were cremated at the request of the Chinese embassy.

The local police in the CAR said Tuesday that “the remains of 9 Chinese citizens killed on March 19 in the CAR will not be returned to China after their bodies were cremated by decision of the Chinese embassy.”

Notably, Bambari City Mayor Abel Machipta said in statements in March that nine Chinese people were killed when militants attacked a gold investment site owned by Chinese mining company Golden Coast Group in Qingbulo City, Bambari City.

For its part, the Chinese Foreign Ministry said that Chinese President Xi Jinping urged that those responsible for the attack on these areas be immediately punished strictly and in accordance with the law and refrain from traveling to them.
