"France will pull out a further 200 soldiers from Afghanistan by the end of the year, the president’s office said Monday, on top of the 200 that returned home at the end of October under a gradual handover by foreign troops. ... Bringing back French troops may prove a boost to Sarkozy in advance of a presidential election in April in which his Socialist rival, Francois Hollande, is favored in polls to win." (11/29/11)
