9:05 pm
mission mission did indeed say that they're investigating this evidence that the u.n. peacekeepers shot at a protester who died but they're also saying that they're investigating also these claims that the protesters attempted to throw a molotov cocktail on to the to the peacekeeper so they're saying that this investigation is going to go on so they can determine this a constance's and also they can determine whether appropriate force was used on that protest that said the u.n. has also really called for calm they say that they understand the frustrations of the people of benny a lot of people have been killed they understand the. anger that the people of benny are expressing but also people have been you need to be patient they need to calm down and they cannot go attacking u.n. peace for peace and forces because those are the same people who are walking with

9:07 pm
saying that the un is not protecting them so what is going wrong here what is going wrong is that we are in a situation where the mission is used as keep good for explaining and answering the anger and despair of the civilian population you referred earlier on to a very you know there's not any incidents whereby another 13 civilians were killed in your achieve lee you know distant area out of. northern part of the binney area i'm here i came here following the meeting between the president presidential security an hour special representative to be able to work together with the national army with the police to strengthen our security set up to increase protection on civilians this is the only way that we are going to make progress and i would see a counter these current wave of violence this is by working together and working
9:08 pm
