Pre-dawn Raid on Ivory Coast Military Camp Kills Six
Ivory Coast Isolated Incident // Crime
Gunmen killed five soldiers and seized weapons in a pre-dawn raid on an army camp in Ivory Coast's commercial capital Abidjan . The West African state, where five soldiers were killed in a similar attack on a police station and army roadblock in another part of Abidjan only the day before, is emerging from years of political turmoil but remains awash with illegal weapons. A group of unidentified heavily armed men in civilian clothes stormed the army camp in the Akouedo neighbourhood, on the eastern edge of the city. Fighting lasted nearly three hours before the army took back control of the area.
