MSF withdaws staff from village after armed men attack hospital


Doctors without Borders (MSF) has been providing medical care in the Central African Republic amidst the violence and conflict and at great risk to the safety of both local and international volunteers and staff. In July 2017, MSF withdrew its staff from Zemio after an armed group attacked the hospital out of which MSF had been operating and implementing a project. The armed militia killed an infant and put many in danger at the hospital. Close to 7,000 civilians have sought refuge in the Zemio hospital due to the escalating violence and fighting between armed factions in the southeastern region of the country.
