The African Union is to nearly double the number of troops it is sending to the Central African Republic, the French presidency announced on Saturday at the end of a mini-summit in Paris.

The announcement came just hours after France agreed to increase its number of troops from 1,200 to 1,600. The international troops are pouring into the strife-torn country following a green light from the UN.
