Posted by African Press International on July 10, 2008

The United Nations mission to the Central Africa Republic and Chad (MINURCAT) will commence on Tuesday training 203 Chadian police and gendarmerie officers, UN sources told APA.

Initiated in the framework of the establishment of an integrated security detachment in the MINURCAT, this drill operation has the ultimate objective of training 850 Chadian police and gendarmerie officers.

In January, 16 police officers were drilled and 71 others in May 2008. The training, which begins on Tuesday, is expected to end in September. The mission of the UN forces in Chad is meant to ensure the security of the refugees and displaced in the east of the country.
