US sends 50 troops to Chad

US President Barack Obama informed Congress on Saturday that 50 US troops have been sent to Chad to protect Americans being evacuated from neighboring Central African Republic.

In a letter to the US Congressmen he said that he made a decision to this effect because of the deteriorating security condition in Central African Republic, where rebels want the ouster of the country’s president Francois Bozize and the revision of the 2007 Peace Treaty.
