Not really part of Opération Barkhane, but in the same region: two commandos Marine were KIA in Burkina Faso during a hostage rescue operation. The hostages were kidnapped while visiting a national park North of Benin
Having an organization like the UN is brilliant in theory but in practice it's a mess. The UNSC is the biggest joke in existence, the UN needs to change its mandate and actually be pro-active, not just jump in after sh!t hits the fan.
Agreed, it was not red, but orange. There is no definite "border", it's a rough guide. Their stupidity led to 2 soldiers getting killed.The zone where they were captured was not RED until the morning after
RED = not recommended for visiting by the french consulate

Yes correct, called in French ligne de vie (lifeline). In the end, the song is “Loin de chez nous, en Afrique”, an old French military song. There's also a “Legion version” of the same song, with different lyrics.For those who do not yet understand French, there is a rope between the two coffins. This rope was what attaches the two divers to make sure that they do not get separated in murky waters. Very symbolic.
