Ivory Coast: March 13, 2005


The government isn't saying much, but thousands of pro-government volunteers and militiamen are moving towards the truce line, and the UN and French peacekeepers that guard it. The northern rebels openly say they expect the government forces to try and get past the peacekeepers, and try to conquer the north. The peacekeepers believe they can stop a major movement of government forces north, but cannot prevent small groups from going north and raiding. The government denies any involvement in this. Peace efforts are going nowhere.
