UNITED NATIONS, Dec 23 (Reuters) - U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is expected to ask the U.N. Security Council on Monday to boost the number of peacekeeping troops in South Sudan to about 11,800 from 6,800, council diplomats said.

The 15-member council is likely to adopt a resolution approving the measure on Tuesday, said the diplomats, speaking on condition of anonymity. Ban is also expected to recommend increasing the number of police to nearly 1,000 from 700.
