Europe Still Divided on Sending Troops

Le Soir reports that the EU remains divided on the question of whether to send troops to the DR Congo, with France and Belgium both pushing for action. Britain is said to favor sending troops under UN auspices only, and Germany favors a "political resolution" to the conflict. Finland, Sweden, Ireland and the Czech Republic are also pushing for EU action, though they have not made any troop commitments.
