Some 180 members of the only Female Formed Police Unit (FPU) of Bangladesh Police have left for Congo to join the United Nations Organisation Stabilisation Mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (MONUSCO).
The unit left for Kinshasa, the capital of Congo, on a chartered flight of Biman Bangladesh Airlines from Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport at 5am on Friday, said the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Saturday.
The FPU has been serving in UN peacekeeping missions for the last 16 months with great efficiency and reputation amid the prevailing Covid-19 pandemic.
