I added category:Nicolas Sarkozy but i'm not sure if he is mentioned enough to warrent it. I also removed Central African Republic infobox and cat as it did not seem to have anything to do with article. Bawolff 09:26, 19 January 2009 (UTC)


I found the latest news which clarified the matter adding Xinhua dn RFI:“This type of helicopter does not have a black box. So the flight was not recorded, nor were the voices in the cockpit. So some elements will remain unknown.” joint investigation was being conducted by French gendarmes and an air accident expert. -six commandos from the French army's elite 13th Regiment of Dragon Paratroopers. -The commandos were part of the 600 French and Gabonese troops maneuvering in the military drill known as Baptise Ngeri. Thanks for the review (I just corrected the template spelling since it appeared red and placed it down to appear on front page after your sight.
