AU Suspends Ivory Coast

“The decision which was taken was to suspend Ivory Coast from participating in the activities of the African Union until the democratically elected president Alassane Ouattara takes power,” AU Peace and Security Commissioner Ramtane Lamamara told reporters.

The 53-nation bloc’s decision came after a meeting at its Addis Ababa headquarters over the Ivory Coast crisis and the situation in Guinea, which also held elections last month. AFP
