Ivory Coast: July 29, 2003


Students staged a protest in Adibjan, demanding compensation of about $500 each for having missed classes this past year due to the civil war. The protesting students claimed to be representing nearly 14,000 peers from the Ivory Coast's north. Other youth groups in Abidjan are vocally pro-government. Police were deployed to guard French-run establishments and prevent a replay of earlier violent protests that targeted foreign and Western businesses in Abidjan. Even though they're only armed with knives, iron bars and sticks, these youth groups are potentially dangerous to the peace process, since they've threatened to derail things in their rabid support of the president. - Adam Geibel
