Attack on I Coast army checkpoint kills 2

17 December 2012, 16:19

Abidjan - Ivory Coast's military says gunmen have attacked an army checkpoint not far from the country's largest city, killing two soldiers.

Cherif Moussa, chief of communications for the army, said the assault took place on Sunday morning in Agboville, about 80km from Abidjan. Moussa says the attackers were heavily armed with rocket-propelled grenades and Kalashnikovs.

President Alassane Ouattara's government alleges that fighters who support former President Laurent Gbagbo are behind recent attacks on military positions in the West African nation.

Since early August, at least 10 such attacks have been carried out throughout the country.

Gbagbo was arrested in April 2011 and now faces charges of crimes against humanity.
