Armed gangs sowing terror in northern Ivory Coast

Soldiers of the Ivory Coast Republican Force (FRCI) patrol the streets of Dabou on August 16, 2012, after attacks on an army base, a prison and police stations the previous nightArmed gangs are running amok in northern Ivory Coast, where residents are being subjected to relentless, sometimes deadly attacks, Human Rights Watch said Monday. HRW said it had documented 15 violent attacks in recent months, in which at least four people were killed and at least 22 wounded. Ivorian media have also carried several reports on the violence, which has been blamed on former fighters from Ivory Coast’s 2002-2011 civil conflict. Banditry has long been a problem in northern Ivory Coast, but residents had noted a slight improvement in 2013.
