(Worthy News) - Armed Seleka militia attacked a camp for displaced people in Ngakobo, Central African Republic on Dec. 3, killing eight Christians and wounding one UN peacekeeper.

According to Barnabas Aid, some of those wounded in the attack were taken to the community hospital in the capital city of Bangui.

Thousands have already been killed in CAR since Muslim Seleka militias seized control of the Christian-majority country in 2013. After months of murders, rapes and looting by Muslim militias, anti-balaka militias sprang up in response. Misleadingly called Christian militias by the media, CAR churches have strongly condemned the violence of the anti-balaka militiamen.

Because of the continued violence, elections that were to be held in October are now slated for held Dec. 27.
