2e REI: 5th Company training

As stated before, the re-created 5th Company from the 2nd Foreign Infantry Regiment (2e REI), the French Foreign Legion unit based in Nimes, has been placed in Paris since last month to participate in Operation Sentinelle. The French government launched this operation in the wake of the Paris Islamist attacks in January 2015.

See the freshly published video with 5th Company legionnaires training in their garrison before the deployment. They are currently patrolling in Paris, together with hundreds of French troops, including legionnaires from 1er REG. The 1er REG legionnaires reinforced the troops after the attacks of 13 November.
