International Red Cross Movement "shocked, saddened" by volunteer deaths in CAR - GENEVA, Aug. 9 (Xinhua) -- The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement said Wednesday it was "shocked and saddened" by the violent deaths of six Red Cross volunteers earlier this week in the Central Africa Republic (CAR).
