Ivory Coast: February 29, 2004


People living in the rebel-held north still have few jobs and civil servants still aren't back on the job, so basic services like health and schooling remain lacking. But many locals in the heavily Moslem area claim that they don't mind living under the rebels, since they no longer feel like second-class citizens. Their biggest complaint is a lack of banks, without which businesses are extremely difficult to start. As such, the northerners are looking forward to UN peacekeepers extending the security blanket the handful of French troops currently provide. - Adam Geibel
