Ouattara-Backed Forces Attack Town as Ivory Coast Conflict Intensifies In Ivory Coast, forces loyal to U.N.-backed President-elect Alassane Ouattara have attacked the town of Daloa as the country moves closer to an all-out civil war following last year’s disputed elections. The city of Daloa is strategically important because it is located in the heart of Ivory Coast’s cocoa belt.

Fighting rages in Ivory Coast's main city
U.N. forces seize airport as rebels enter Abidjan; fighting outside entrenched ruler's residence



msnbc.com news services
ABIDJAN, Ivory Coast —

Forces trying to install Alassane Ouattara as Ivory Coast's democratically elected president attacked the residence of incumbent Laurent Gbagbo early Friday, a spokesman for Ouattara's government said.

"His house is under attack. That's for sure. There is a resistance, but it's under attack," spokesman Patrick Achi told Reuters.

Reports of the attack on Gbagbo's residence follow hours fighting between the two factions and statements by Ouattara's camp that they seized the nearby headquarters of state broadcaster RTI, which went off air late on Thursday evening.

There was no immediate reaction from Gbabgo's camp.

Ouattara's fighters descended Thursday on Ivory Coast's largest city and seat of power, poised for a final push to unseat Gbagbo.

Forces backing Ouattara have overrun nearly 80 percent of the country as soldiers fled and towns fell in quick succession. The regular army put up almost no resistance during the four-day offensive, including in the ruler's hometown, where fighters broke into Gbagbo's compound and slept in his bed.

But they may face fierce resistance on the peninsula where the presidential palace is located, surrounded on all sides by a natural moat — Abidjan's glassy lagoon.
.....
The U.N. reiterated calls for Gbagbo to step down and Washington called on all sides to exercise restraint.


Gbagbo's elite forces took positions around the presidential palace while French soldiers were also deployed in the city to protect foreign residents. A United Nations helicopter gunship flew overhead.


United Nations troops in armored vehicles took control of Abidjan's airport and no policemen were present, a private security source told Reuters.

John A Afful, AfricaNews reporter in Takoradi, Ghana

West African nation Ivory Coast hopes to triple gold output by 2015 to about 20 tonnes per year as three new mines start up including Randgold Resources' Tongon development, according to a government official.
"From here to 2015, production of gold in Ivory Coast will be at least 20 tonnes per year because of the new mines," Mbe Adou, general director of mines and geology told Reuters.

vAMY GOODMAN: On Wednesday, the U.N. Security Council voted to impose sanctions on Gbagbo and his inner circle, as you’ve said. In a unanimous vote, the Council authorized travel restrictions and an asset freeze on Gbagbo, his wife and three close associates. The U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Susan Rice, praised the vote.

AMB. SUSAN RICE: This resolution sends a strong signal: Mr. Gbagbo and his followers should immediately reject violence and respect the will of the Ivorian people. As violence continues, Côte d’Ivoire stands at a crossroads. Mr. Gbagbo and his supporters can continue to cling to power, which will only lead to more innocent civilians being wounded and killed and more diplomatic and economic isolation. Or Mr. Gbagbo and his followers can finally reject violence and respect the will of the Ivorian people. If this path is chosen, Ivorians can reclaim their country and rebuild a vibrant economy that was once the admiration of all of Africa.


AMY GOODMAN: That was the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Susan Rice, talking about Côte d’Ivoire—in English, Ivory Coast. Gnaka Lagoke also with us, a political analyst, runs AfricanDiplomacy.com. Your response to the situation there, what the U.N. has done, and what you feel needs to be done?

GNAKA LAGOKE: Thank you very much, Amy Goodman, and thank you for having me back on your show.

The reality on the ground is very, very serious and very complicated. Alassane Dramane Ouattara’s forces, as we know, have been progressing and taking cities, you know, from the central part of the country to the western part of the country, and now they are in Abidjan, trying to dislodge Gbagbo or trying to kill Gbagbo Laurent.

I know that Gbagbo’s forces have committed some human rights violations, but I am surprised that all that noise is made about Gbagbo’s people killing innocent people in the Ivory Coast, and people are not putting emphasis on Alassane Ouattara’s people who have been committing many violations in the western part of the country, and they have killed, killed civilians in different parts of the country.

The United Nations is involved in the crisis, and they decided to become the king maker. And at the same time, the U.N. and the French forces—that’s the reality on the ground—they are backing Alassane Ouattara’s forces, and they are giving them a strategic support with their warplanes. And there are even people out there, witnesses, who are saying that they have seen French soldiers shooting at Gbagbo’s soldiers. This is also the reality on the ground.
