Djibouti - Flooding (27 mars 2013)
France offers its condolences to the people of Djibouti following the severe flooding on March 25 that left a dozen people dead.
At the request of Djibouti’s authorities, three Puma helicopters and a Gazelle from the French Air Force flew to the scene, with two French medical teams assisted by a Djiboutian military doctor.
They embarked 15 injured individuals, some of whom were taken to the Bouffard French military hospital. A Puma also rescued six children trapped by a flash flood in the Ambouli wadi.
