EU ministers to back sending force to Central African Republic
By Adrian Croft BRUSSELS (Reuters) - European Union foreign ministers are expected to agree on Monday to send up to 1,000 soldiers to help stabilize Central African Republic, the EU's first major army operation in six years, EU officials said on Friday. The intervention by the 28-nation bloc comes after a senior U.N. official warned on Thursday of the risk of genocide in Central African Republic without a more robust international response to communal bloodshed. Foreign ministers meeting in Brussels on Monday are set to approve the broad outline of a plan to send EU peacekeeping troops. Diplomats said the EU force could start arriving in Central African Republic by the end of February.
