France told to steer clear of Comoros

Moroni - The coup leader in the Comoros told France, the former colonial ruler, not to intervene, saying he had already honoured a promise to hand power to civilians. A French show of force off the Indian Ocean islands put local troops on edge four days after the coup, which was spearheaded by 20 mercenaries led by French soldier of fortune, Bob Denard. Reuter
