Another soft target, this time again in West Africa. 21 killed including three attackers and three special forces in the Sunday beachfront shooting in Ivory Coast’s historic resort of Grand Bassam. What impact on a country that’s rebounded from civil war in a way that’s drawn back investors and institutions like the African Development Bank? What response, not only from local and regional authorities but also from former colonial power France, arguably one of the targets of Sunday’s attack?
Produced by Charles WENTE, Fran├žois WIBAUX and Elom Marcel TOBLE.
