Ivory Coast: July 11, 2003


: Liberian ULIMO (United Liberation Movement in Liberia) and LURD (Liberians United for Reconciliation and Democracy) rebels who have fought in Sierra Leone and the Ivory Coast have infested neighboring Guinea's forest region and turned it into a high-risk zone. - Adam Geibel 

July 10, 2003: Three people were killed and a dozen more wounded when armed gendarmes used bulldozers to raze huts in Adibjan's 'Jerusalem' shantytown, which left at least 8,000 people without shelter. Destruction of these shantytowns was also done following the September 2002 coup attempt, since they were believed to house the coup supporters. Human rights agencies said that the government program was simply targeting foreigners. - Adam Geibel
