A member of the Discalced Carmelite Fathers ministering in the Central African Republic (CAR) who sustained injuries when the car he was traveling in on February 10 detonated a land mine is responding to treatment.
In a Monday, February 13 report by Agenzia Fides, Fr. Aurelio Gazzera provides details about the February 10 attack and updates about the health of Fr. Norberto Pozzi.
“On Friday afternoon, February 10, Father Norberto was on his way from Bozoum to Bouar when, some 22 km from Bozoum, the car he was traveling in hit a mine,” Fr. Gazzera has been quoted as saying.
He adds, “There were 5 other people, a French confrere and 4 Central African helpers in the Toyota Land Cruiser in addition to the Italian missionary.”
“The confrere suffered minor injuries while a carpenter who is also a catechist suffered a fractured shoulder,” he recounts and adds, “The most serious injuries were suffered by Father Norberto.”
