Leave it to France
France has taken up the responsibility of leading UN peacekeepers in Lebanon. It is consulting Turkey, Pakistan and Malaysia over troop contributions. Amit Baruah reports that India ‘appears to have been kept out’ of the diplomatic discussions over the composition of the peacekeeping force.

Update: They should rightly be called “Blue Turbans”
