Streets of Ivory Coast's second city calm after soldier mutiny


BOUAKE The streets of Ivory Coast’s second-largest city Bouake were calm and the military presence was gone, residents said on Sunday, after a two-day soldiers’ mutiny calling for bonus pay and better living conditions took over the city.

The mutiny began early on Friday when rogue soldiers seized Bouake. Soldiers at military camps in cities and towns across the country, including the commercial capital Abidjan, joined the rebellion.

A deal was reached between the government and the soldiers late on Saturday after negotiations.
