Gbagbo allies behind wave of attacks in Ivory Coast -Interior Minister

ABIDJAN, Sept 7 (Reuters) - A group of allies of Ivory Coast’s former president Laurent Gbagbo, including at least one living in exile in neighbouring Ghana, are behind a wave of attacks on security installations this year, the Interior Minister said on Thursday.

Thirty-five people, a number of them soldiers, have been arrested for involvement in the “destabilisation project”, according to a statement released by Sidiki Diakite following a meeting of the National Security Council.
