UNSC OKs thousands more South Sudan peacekeepers

Published: 12.24.13, 22:37 / Israel News

The UN Security Council approved plans on Tuesday to almost double the number of United Nations peacekeepers in South Sudan as soon as possible to protect civilians from worsening violence that has pushed the world's newest state to the verge of civil war.

 

The 15-member council unanimously authorized a request by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to boost the strength of the UN mission in South Sudan to 12,500 troops and 1,323 police, from its previous mandate of 7,000 troops and 900 police. (Reuters)
