European Union ministers discussed plans Monday to send hundreds of troops to the Central African Republic, a rare joint military mission aimed at restoring order amid fears of sectarian violence.Arriving for an EU foreign ministers' meeting, several ministers spoke in favour of the rapid deployment of a force numbering anywhere between 400 and 1,000 to help back French and African forces already on the ground in the impoverished nation.Britain, like Germany, has offered logistical support for the French operation but has made repeatedly clear it would not send troops.Along with the French, some 4,000 African troops are in CAR under a UN mandate, trying to end violence between Christian militias and ex-rebels who installed the country's first Muslim leader in a coup in March.
