Ivory Coast: September 17, 2003


A Parisian court freed former Ivory Coast coup-maker Ibrahim Coulibaly (on $22,000 bail) and five accused accomplices, but ordered that a sixth suspect remain in custody. The court ordered Coulibaly to hand over his passport, to report regularly to a police station and banned him from leaving France or contacting any of those facing the same charges. Two others released were Hassan Sahkr (a Lebanese expatriate suspected of being the group's financier) and Mamadou Diomade (a lawyer suspected of having enrolled recruits). Three mercenaries were also freed without bail. - Adam Geibel
