No easy solutions to Ivory Coast crisis

CNN: “The intractable violence in the Ivory Coast continues unabated. The U.N. peacekeeping mission warns that forces loyal to former President Laurent Gbgabo are using heavy weapons to target civilians.   Alassane Ouattara, the man recognized by African leaders as the winner of last year’s presidential election, blames the U.N. for not doing enough to protect civilians. It is estimated that hundreds of ordinary Ivorians have been killed since November’s disputed election, including defenseless women protestors mowed down by government forces and then aired on YouTube.”
