Ivory Coast engulfed in violence, French troops deploy in Abidjan
ABIDJAN, Nov 7 (AFP) - French forces in Ivory Coast began deploying in the violence-torn main city of Abidjan Sunday as the head of Ivory Coast's ruling party demanded that Paris withdraw its troops from the west African country.
The developments followed a night of fighting in which French peacekeepers clashed with thousands of demonstrators, leaving at least three dead, after a government air strike killed nine French peacekeepers and a US civilian in Bouake, in the center of the former French colony.
