Goroumo is a village in the Central African Republic prefecture of Ouham-Pendé, close to the western border with Cameroon, that in 2008 was attacked by bandits who killed almost all the male inhabitants.[1][2] BBC reporter Mike Thomson wrote that many of the bandits were veteran fighters from past coups.[1]
