The UN justifies the shots in Ivory Coast

The secretary general of the United Nations, Ban Ki-moon said in a statement on Sunday ordered to fire heavy weapons to neutralize the outgoing Ivorian President Laurent Gbagbo in Abidjan. Ban said the new UN attacks were directed against the presidential palace and various military camps close after attacks by Gbagbo's forces against the headquarters of President elected and recognized by the international community, Alassane Ouattara, and mission UN in Côte d'Ivoire, UNOCI.

The secretary general of the United Nations reiterated the UN's allegations according to which Gbagbo had taken advantage of the negotiations at the beginning of the week to "regroup their forces and heavy weapons deployed again." The continued use of heavy weapons against civilians and the peacekeepers, as well as attacks against the headquarters of the legitimate government, pushed me, once again, to order the UNOCI to use all necessary means to prevent the use of such weapons.

" French helicopters attacked the UN and heavy weapons from troops loyal to Gbagbo, his spokesman said his home had been partially destroyed. In turn, declined to say whether Gbagbo was in residence at the time.
