UN kicked out of Chad
- 26 May 2010 12:00 (South Africa)
The United Nations Security Council voted unanimously to withdraw a peacekeeping force from Chad and the Central African Republic, in line with the wishes of their governments. That makes it the second such force to be kicked out of Africa (the Democratic Republic of the Congo demanded a similar withdrawal recently) for the same reason: Chad says the foreign troops have done nothing to bring peace and stability to the region.
