A soldier of the Forces Republicaines de Cote d’Ivoire (FRCI) enters a house on April 27, 2011 in Abidjan during an attack against a militia group that helped drive former President Laurent Gbagbo from power. The Republican Forces moved into Abidjan’s northern Abobo district in an offensive to dislodge fighters of former coup-plotter Ibarhim Coulibaly, who claims to command a 5,000-strong force. Ivory Coast’s new President Alassane Ouattara has urged armed groups to lay down weapons or be disarmed by force, as his government, which took power after strongman Gbagbo’s April 11 arrest, exerts authority in the crisis-hit country.
