Calm Returns To Ivory Coast After Unrest

Calm Returns To Ivory Coast After Unrest

A rebellion in Ivory Coast over soldiers’ pay appears to have passed.
Residents and correspondents in the second city, Bouake, described calm on the streets – a day after troops briefly seized the defence minister.
The rebellion had spread from there to other cities, including the commercial hub, Abidjan, but that city, too, is now quiet.
A deal was struck between the mutinous soldiers and the government on Saturday, though details are scant.
A correspondent for AFP news agency in Bouake said on Sunday that there had been no firing there since Saturday evening.
“Traffic has resumed this morning and the shops have reopened.”
