2e REI: Training for Africa 2020

See a video of a platoon from the 2nd Foreign Infantry Regiment (2e REI) that is training in France before their deployment to Mali in West Africa, to participate there in anti-terrorist Operation Barkhane.

The 2e REI legionnaires are led by a young French platoon leader (26), who is going on his first mission. In Mali, they will be put on the front line to pursue local radical islamists. Currently, 4,500 French soldiers (including a number of legionnaires) are involved in the operation.
