The bloodshed has provoked France to send combatant jets, helicopters, parachutists and armored vehicles to its former colony.

The joined Kingdom supplied a transport plane to help France's equipped intervention.

“You have to protected, you have to disarm,” French protecting against Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian notified wireless France Internationale.
