This Monday, on September 23, while going to the military camp of Caylus to conduct a military exercise, a platoon of the 2nd Volunteers Company of 4th Foreign Regiment, the training regiment of the Foreign Legion, had an accident in the exit of Verfeil-sur-Seye, a commune in the Midi-Pyrénées region in southern France.
Army general Ract Madoux, the head of the French Army, visited Mali ten days ago. Four days ago, on September 19, the French president François Hollande visited Mali too. During their visit, both of them met legionnaires that have served in this African country since the end of May.
French troops placed in Mali participate in numerous operations to find out last rebel’s hideouts or to protect already cleaned regions. The French Army has released a few new images from such operations.
