U.N. forces pound Gbagbo loyalist camps in Ivory Coast

“U.N. military helicopters Sunday pounded heavy weapons positions of fighters loyal to self-declared Ivory Coast President Laurent Gbagbo, U.N. officials said.

U.N. Special Representative Young-Jin Choi said pro-Gbagbo forces were shelling the Golf Hotel in Abidjan, where the country’s internationally recognized president Alassane Ouattara is staying, and ‘today they began to shell our quarters’ — the section of the hotel in which the U.N. forces are headquartered — as well. ‘So we decided we cannot pass this moment without action,’ Choi said.”
