France ends military mission in CAR after abuse allegations

French Sangaris forces patrol in Bangui, central African Republic in February 2016 as people vote in presidential elections hoping to bring peace after the country's worst sectarian violence since independence in 1960France’s Operation Sangaris will formally end on Monday, almost three years after the military mission was launched in December 2013 to quell inter-ethnic unrest in Central African Republic (CAR). The operation initially ran alongside an African Union peacekeeping mission called MISCA which later morphed into the UN’s MINUSCA force, helping to restore stability in the capital Bangui yet without managing to end violence elsewhere. In June, France said it had reduced its force in CAR to 350 soldiers, who would serve as a tactical reserve force for the UN peacekeepers, effectively announcing the end of its military mission there.
