U.S. Issues Alert For CAR

WASHINGTON, July 29 (UPI) — Armed bandits and militia groups pose a danger to U.S. nationals traveling in the Central African Republic, the U.S. State Department warned.

U.S. citizens in the Central African Republic are advised by the State Department to avoid all but necessary travel outside the capital city Bangui.

The State Department warns the crime rate is high in the country and military and civilian security forces are known to harass international residents and foreign visitors.

The warning adds that bandits and poachers pose a threat to foreigners, with some poachers threatening game hunters on the region. The Lord’s Resistance Army also poses a threat in the eastern part of the country, the warning states.

The International Criminal Court issued an arrest warrant for LRA leader Joseph Kony and five other top commanders in 2006.

The U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs last week accused the LRA of killing at least 26 people in the Democratic Republic of the Congo in June.
