French Foreign Minister: Other European Countries To Send Troops To CAR

Specific countries not named


Laurent Fabius, the French foreign minister, announced on Tuesday that other European countries would deploy ground troops to the violence-hit Central African Republic, without identifying them.

"We will soon have troops on the ground provided by our European colleagues," he told the lower house of the French National Assembly, days after he decided to seek help from the rest of Europe with its former colony, where France has deployed a 1,600-strong force to quell brutal sectarian violence.
