Central African Republic – Tribute paid to the soldiers from MISCA [AFISM-CAR] killed in the Central African Republic (December 31, 2013)
Eleven soldiers from the African force deployed in the Central African Republic (MISCA [AFISM-CAR]) have been killed while carrying out their mission since December 5.
France pays tribute to these soldiers and police officers from Chad and the Republic of Congo. It extends its condolences to their families as well as to the Chadian and Congolese authorities.
With the help of the Sangaris force, France is supporting MISCA in its mission to protect the civilian populations. We salute the efforts of the African Union to ensure the stabilization of the Central African Republic.
