` UN says `Chadian Soldiers ‘ have Killed 30 Civilians and Seriously Wounded 300 in an Attack on a Market’

#AceWorldNews – BANGUI – April 04 – Chadian soldiers killed 30 civilians and seriously wounded more than 300 in an indiscriminate attack on a market on March 29 in Bangui, capital of the Central African Republic, Reuters quoted a spokesman for the UN human rights office as saying on Friday.

Local officials and aid workers had previously put the death toll to at least 10, with 30 wounded. Chadian soldiers have been at the heart of African efforts to stabilize CAR, but have been accused of siding with the mainly Muslim Seleka rebels.

Their seizure of power last year sparked tit-for-tat violence with Christian militia.

#AceHealthNews says according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has told manufacturers of antibacterial soaps and body washes to demonstrate that they are both safe and effective within the next year. New evidence is emerging that some of the chemicals used in soaps, toothpaste, dish detergent, and other common household products may pose hazards for human health and the environment. The FDA’s proposed final rule would require manufacturers to demonstrate efficacy and safety or the products could be reformulated or removed from the market.
