Operation under way to "re-establish order" in Ivory Coast -army chief

ABIDJAN, May 14 (Reuters) - Ivory Coast has launched a military operation “to re-establish order” on the third day of a nationwide army mutiny over bonus payments, the Military Chief of Staff General Sekou Toure said in a statement on Sunday.

“These acts of an extreme seriousness are contrary to the mission of protection assigned to the armed forces. As a result, a military operation is under way to re-establish order,” the statement said. (Reporting by Joe Bavier; Editing by Louise Ireland)
