Fiji authority ‘very concerned’ after rebels pull out

    Fears are growing for the safety of 45 Fijian peacekeepers after the al-Nusra front had pulled out of United Nations-brokered negotiations with rebel agents.

    The rebels al-Qaeda linked group claimed it was responsible for the capture of the 45 soldiers. At the sametime the Fijian and UN authorities could not be able to tell where exactly the soldiers are kept.

    In a press conference, RFMF Commander Brigadier-General Mosese Tikoitoga has confirmed this to Fiji’s media saying there is still hope the rebels will “come back to the table very soon”.

    “Now we have reached the ninth day of capture and we are very concerned”, Fiji Times Online quoted Tikoitonga as saying.

    It has also been revealed the Land Force Commander Lieutenant Colonel Jone Kalouniwai and a team of three senior military officers will be flown to Syria next week to join the negotiators.

    The ambassador at large, Major- General Ioane Naivalurua, is travelling to New York next week to help put pressure on the UN system, Times report says.
