(ANS) – At around 4am on Monday 7 June, unidentified gunmen entered the town of Gohitafla, a frontline town in divided Cote d’Ivoire (CI) that lies on the south end of the demilitarized “zone of confidence” policed by French peacekeepers. The group of around 30 gunmen entered the farming village of Gohitafla from the rebel-held north only hours after President Gbagbo had flown out of CI for a 9-day visit to the USA . Suspicion abounds that the rebel forces had attempted to re-ignite hostilities in President Gbagbo’s absence, and in his native region. Djedje Augustin, reporting for, writes that the gunmen were members of Guillaume Soro’s rebel forces, although the rebels deny that they were responsible for the attack.
