The French Authorities have denied claims that French Military personnel were recently detained by Chadian forces near the border with Sudan because they were in the area illegally.

Video and images shared on twitter show several uniformed men with French military insignia crouching on the ground guarded by a group of Chadian soldiers, one of whom is speaking on the phone.

The joint staff of the French Armed Forces said that the incident was a misunderstanding.

The French authorities said the French soldiers were out checking the state of the roads before the rainy season in Chad, and were allowed to proceed once the misunderstanding had been cleared up.
