NIGER-MALI-CHAD-CONFLICT-TROOPS

Chadian soldiers stand in front of their armoured vehicles as they prepare to leave a military camp on the outskirts of Niamey on January 24, 2013, on their way to Mali. Chad has doubled its troops arriving in Niger to help local forces mount a new front to battle Islamists in the northern Malian city of Gao, from 200 to 400, acccording to a Chadian military source. African nations jolted into action by France's surprise intervention in Mali responded with swift troop pledges but a lack of funds, equipment and battle readiness has slowed their deployment, diplomats say.
