French Aircraft Carrier Brings Adds Force With Anti-IS Coalition

French President Francois Hollande ordered the nuclear-powered Charles de Gaulle Aircraft Carrier to the Gulf just days after Islamic extremists launched a deadly attack on the Paris office of satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo in January.
France's only aircraft carrier and the flagship of the French navy, arrived in the Persian Gulf last month to help provide additional air power to the U.S.-led coalition conducting airstrikes against the militants who have seized a third of Iraq and Syria.
