That action occurred on Sunday at 05:00 hours, local time, in Sourou, and N’Djamena authorities described it as a war crime.

‘The heavily armed attackers killed a Chadian soldier and injured five. They kidnapped five others who were then executed in Mbang, in the Central African Republic,’ Chadian Foreign Minister Cherif Mahamat Zene said in a statement.

‘This very serious war crime and this deadly premeditated attack, planned and carried out inside Chad, whose reasons only the Central African Government knows, cannot go unpunished,’ added the minister, who stressed that N’Djamena fully holds the Central African Republic responsible for the consequences of this aggression.

The Chadian foreign minister pointed out that nothing justifies this attack at a time when the two countries are trying to join forces to face common security challenges and strengthen bilateral cooperation.

So far, Bangui authorities have not commented about these allegations.
