Gabon to quit UN peacekeeping force in C Africa

AFP

LIBREVILLE: Gabon is to withdraw its forces from the UN peacekeeping mission in the Central African Republic, a force known by its initials of MINUSCA, reports AFP.

The cabinet on Thursday endorsed a request by the defence ministry to pull out the country’s troops in MINUSCA, “given the progressive return to peace and stability” there, according to a report of the meeting issued Friday.

Gabon contributes 444 troops to the 12,500 in MINUSCA, one of the UN’s biggest peacekeeping missions.

The CAR has been struggling to return to stability since the country exploded into bloodshed after the 2013 overthrow of longtime leader Francois Bozize by the mainly Muslim Seleka rebel alliance.

France intervened militarily to push out the Seleka alliance, but the country—one of the poorest in the world—remains plagued by violence between ex-rebels and vigilante militias.
