Gâmbia: Diminui o número de soldados estrangeiros

Thousands of soldiers from the West African bloc ECOWAS will start returning home this month from The Gambia, from where long-time leader Yahya Jammeh was forced to flee last month, paving the way for new President Adama Barrow to take office, Euronews reported.
The multinational force will be cut to 500 troops from the 7,000 sent into Gambia after Jammeh, who had ruled since seizing power in a 1994 coup, have refused to accept Barrow’s victory in a Dec. 1 election.
Force's mission will include protecting Barrow and other government members and institutions as trust is established between the new authorities and Gambia’s military, which was a pillar of Jammeh’s authoritarian regime.
