UNOCI and French Licorne Destroy Heavy Weaponry used by Pro-Gbagbo Camp

UNOCI and French Licorne Destroy Heavy Weaponry used by Pro-Gbagbo Camp
The heavy weaponry used by forces loyal to former Ivorian President Laurent Gbagbo are destroyed at a naval base in Locodjoro, a neighbourhood of Abidjan, Ivory Coast on April 10, 2011, as part of a joint operation by the UN mission there (UNOCI) and French Licorne forces to prevent the use of heavy weapons against civilians and UN peacekeepers. Ivorian civilians, UNOCI, and supporters of new president Alassane Ouattara, have all come under attack by Gbagbo loyalists since Mr. Gbagbo’s loss in 2010 presidential elections.UPI/GLENNA GORDON/UN
