Ivory Coast Government And Rebel Troops Reach Deal

Ivory Coast government and rebel troops reach deal

ABIDJAN, , (Pakistan Point News - APP - 14th Jan, 2017 ) - Ivory Coast's government and rebel troops have reached a final deal at talks in Bouake, government sources said late Friday at the close of a tense day which saw outbreaks of gunfire at barracks across the country. Soldiers in Bouake mutinied earlier this month, firing rocket-launchers and terrifying residents of Ivory Coast's second largest city, while demanding bonuses, better pay and housing. The protests then spread to other cities, including the economic capital Abidjan, stoking security fears in the world's top cocoa producer.
