Did you know we played a role in protecting Pope Francis on his recently concluded trip to Africa?
OK, so maybe that’s not the same CNS.
Still, it was surprising that on the pope’s last stop, in Bangui, Central African Republic, CNS was there policing some of the crowds. Just check out the helmets.
Turns out that in Bangui, CNS stands for “Compagnie Nationale de Sécurité,” a national police force.
Fortunately, we don’t need those guns to do our jobs. But one of those helmets sure would be nice the next time one of our reporters has to cover some world trouble spot.
