Ivory Coast Civil War

   Between November 2010 and April 2011, government military forces killed more than 800 civilians throughout the small West African nation of Ivory Coast.   Towards the end of this period, mortars and heavy machineguns were being fired against people, this development raising very serious international concern.   Some BM-21 Grad truck-mounted multiple rocket launchers and at least one Mi-24 Hind helicopter gunship, both items of Soviet-made military hardware, were reportedly being prepared for combat missions here.   United Nations military intervention in this new conflict was to include air strikes by French helicopter gunships and artillery barrages against marauding troops.   Ivory Coast is currently the world’s largest producer and supplier of cocoa, the chief ingredient in chocolate.   As a result, this new civil war may cause international chocolate prices to rise considerably.  (Article by Freelance writer B.
