Ivory Coast’s Gbagbo Gets Bank Funds as Ouattara Plans Strike

Laurent Gbagbo’s government in Ivory Coast said it continues to take money from the country’s central bank account, more than three weeks after the bank said it would only recognize requests from the rival administration of Alassane Ouattara.

“Our government is withdrawing money on a daily basis,” Ahoua Don Mello, an adviser to Gbagbo, said by phone today.
