Ivory Coast: April 28, 2003


The UN and other observers are left scratching their collective heads over who actually killed MPCI leader Felix Doh and what his death will mean for the Ivory Coast's nasty little civil war.

There had also been reports that Sam Bockarie, a former Revolutionary United Front (RUF) commander in Sierra Leone, had led the unit that kidnapped and killed Doh. Another MPCI member claimed that his death had been a settling of scores by others in the MPCI who suspected Doh of plotting against them.

Some locals expected that there'll be more scores settled, now that there is a power vacuum. Other rebels would want to use the opportunity to stop fighting or just do improve their own financial positions. - Adam Geibel
