Ivory Coast's ex 'Iron Lady', Simone Gbagbo, on trial

Ivory Coast’s former first lady Simone Gbagbo went on trial Friday for “attempting to undermine the security of the state” in events leading to a bloody 2010-2011 crisis that left thousands dead. Gbagbo, who has been held for three years and is also wanted by an international court for crimes against humanity, entered the Abidjan court where she is standing trial with 82 others, to cheers and applause from the public. The 65-year-old wife of ex-president Laurent Gbagbo, dressed in yellow and with her hair plaited, took a front seat before the judge next to her husband’s last prime minister and party chief Pascal Affi N’Guessan.
