Ivory Coast: October 16, 2003


A pro-government newspaper in Abidjan insinuated that the MPCI rebel delegation visiting the United States was actually a thin excuse for a weapons buying spree. They claim that rebel leader Dacoury Tabley openly contacted US and eastern European weapons dealers, making arrangements to have additional munitions delivered to their Bouake bases. The paper also insinuated that the rebels were using nearly $73 million in Central Africa Francs that supposedly disappeared during the September holdup of the Bouake branch of the Central Bank of West African States as a bankroll. - Adam Geibel
