CAR: Retired military personnel protest [Morning Call]

The Morning Call

The Central African Republic’s government is facing a new hurdle and this time it is not in the hands of armed groups which control most of the country.

For the past 48 hours, several avenues in Bangui have been barricaded by retired soldiers of the Central African armed forces thus preventing free movement in the capital.

The approximately 800 military personnel are demanding retirement packages and others are contesting forced retirement.
