France Asking For European Help With CAR Intervention

France is seeking more help from European nations for its effort to restore security in the Central African Republic.

French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said he will ask his European Union counterparts for more aid at a meeting Monday in Brussels.

He said in a radio interview Sunday that increased assistance could include other nations providing troops to the Central African Republic. France has deployed 1,600 troops there as part of a United Nations-mandated effort to restore security and protect civilians.
