    French Embassy: Forces arrest Ivory Coast's Gbagbo

    article

    ABIDJAN, Ivory Coast The French Embassy in Ivory Coast said strongman Laurent Gbagbo was captured Monday by forces of democratically elected leader Alassane Ouattara.

    The move came after an attack by French forces earlier Monday. An embassy official confirmed the detention by phone to an Associated Press reporter in Paris, speaking on condition of anonymity because of government policy.
    Hopefully this will result in some normalcy returning to Cote d'Ivoire... only time will tell... now at least, we can get back to eating chocolate without worrying about the supply of cocoa cut off... that's what is truly important, right?

    Good to hear the Gbagbo was arrested. All that needs to occur now is that the duly elected president needs to take the reigns of power.

    Actually, this was a matter of allowing the legitimate winner of the election take the presidency...
