Jeddah (IINA) - The OIC General Secretariat strongly condemned the acts of violence perpetrated by Anti-Balaka militias recently in Bangassou in Central Africa.

The violence claimed the lives of dozens of Muslims and UN peacekeepers, including a soldier from Morocco and five others of different nationalities, as well as the displacement of hundreds of unarmed civilians.

In this regard, the OIC Secretary General Dr. Yousef Al-Othaimeen extended his condolences to the families of the victims and to the Kingdom of Morocco. He also expressed deep regret over the continuing violence over there, stressing the organization's solidarity with the Central African Republic and its readiness to provide full support for peace and reconciliation between different races and restore security and stability.
