"Today at 17:00 the bodies will be sent. We are now working on the process of transportation of the bodies," the embassy's spokesperson said.
According to the spokesperson, equipment and documents of the murdered journalists had not been found yet.
He also noted that the Russian diplomatic mission was unaware of the timeline for sending Russian investigators to the African country to probe into the murder.

The Russian Foreign Ministry's consular department website has meanwhile warned against visiting the CAR, where law enforcement forces "are, in fact, not functioning and one cannot count on their assistance in case of trouble." The ministry added that security situation in the CAR remains complicated, citing regular armed robberies, killings and attacks on foreigners.
