Dozens of armed Muslim rebels opened fire in a hospital in Central African Republic, killing at least 16 people, including three local health workers for Doctors Without Borders, officials said Monday.In further violence, a convoy transporting more than 1,300 Muslims to safety in the country's far north came under attack, leaving at least two people dead, according to a spokesman with the African peacekeeping mission in Central African Republic. Earlier this month, almost 7,000 people fled into the countryside after a convoy came under attack in the area. As many as 40 people sought refuge at the MSF clinic at the time, the group said. The convoy is bound for two northern towns still inside Central African Republic, though suspected Christian militants launched grenades that killed two and left at least six wounded, he said.
