GENEVA, Switzerland, December 5, 2013/African Press Organization (APO)/ — Following attacks since 5am this morning in Bangui, Central African Republic, Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) teams are responding and have treated wounded in hospitals in the city. Sylvain Groulx, the general coordinator of MSF in CAR, reports that around 65 wounded have been taken to the hospital Communautaire, 20 of them in critical condition, 8 have died. An MSF team has been dispatched to the hospital to support the staff. The volatile situation in Bangui means it is difficult to report a reliable number of dead and wounded at this time. MSF has also set in place contingency plans to support health centres and hospitals in the capital, with available supplies of surgical material, drugs, fuel and water, if needs arise.
