Camille Lepage in Damara in the CAR in February
A French journalist has been killed in the Central African Republic (CAR), a statement from French President Francois Hollande said on Tuesday. The body of 26-year-old Camille Lepage was found by French soldiers during a vehicle check in western CAR. Lepage worked as a photojournalist and correspondent for RFI and other media houses.
“The president has learned with great sadness about the death of journalist Camille Lepage, who was reporting from the Central African Republic,” Hollande’s statement said.
“The body of Miss Lepage was found by a patrol of Sangaris troops while checking a vehicle driven by anti-Balaka militia in the region of Bouar,” the statement added, referring to militiamen from the mainly Christian vigilante group.
