French minister says CAR operation to last longer than expected
France's military operation in the Central African Republic will last longer than initially planned because the situation in the country is worse than anticipated, French Defense Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said on Saturday. "I think it will be longer than expected because the level of hatred and violence is more important than we had imagined," Le Drian told France Inter radio. "A military operation is not decreed as clockwork, we have to adapt." France said on Friday it would send another 400 troops to help combat the crisis in the African country as U.N. chief Ban Ki-moon pleaded for more swift, robust international help to stop sectarian violence that could turn into a genocide. Seleka leader Michel Djotodia gave up power last month as Christian militias stepped up their attacks on Muslims.
