Ivory Coast: April 16, 2003


: Ivory Coast rebels said that government gunships were continuing to attack western rebel-controlled areas, killing nine people: six on the 15th and three on the 14th in the towns of Zouan-Hounien, Danane and Mahapleu. These towns are all close to Ivory Coast's border with Liberia. 

Italian priests reported that on the afternoon of the 14th, two government helicopters attacked MPIGO posts in Zouan Houmien after the rebels apparently attempted to regain control of the town in a heavy offensive. They also reported that 14 civilians were wounded. - Adam Geibel
