A column of French UN peacekeepers and military vehicles including four tanks left Monday to take up position in southern Lebanon on the border zone with Israel. The 30-strong detachment departed from a rear base near the town of Deir Kifa to a zone currently controlled by Ghanaian peacekeepers around Bint Jbeil, which lies just a few kilometers (miles) from the border with Israel.

In all, about 300-400 French troops will be based in the zone, he said.
