A logistics convoy of the UN Mission in the Central African Republic and Chad (MINURCAT) composed of three civilian vehicles was attacked yesterday by four unidentified armed men in southeastern Chad.

The MINURCAT military force quickly deployed an armed convoy including emergency medical personnel to retrieve the staff members and the damaged vehicles.
