Bangladesh, Pakistan and Morocco have agreed to contribute three battalions to the new UN force, said France’s UN Ambassador Gerard Araud. The first contingents will begin arriving around September 15 and will beef up the 6,000 African troops serving in the African Union’s MISCA force. The head of UN peacekeeping operations, Herve Ladsous, said the new UN force will work to strengthen security at a “significantly superior” level than the current MISCA operation.
