This is revealed by the U.N. peacekeeping Chief, Hervé Ladsous who was speaking this Tuesday, at the end of a two-day visit to the country.

Ladsous says the first troops to arrive for the regional protection force will be from Rwanda, Nepal, Bangladesh, and Ethiopia.

The 4,000-strong protection force was authorized by the Security Council in August of last year, in response to a surge in violence in the country.
