Ivory Coast soldiers accept deal to end mutiny -spokesmen

BOUAKE, Ivory Coast, May 16 (Reuters) - The leaders of a nationwide military mutiny in Ivory Coast have accepted a government proposal on bonus payments and agreed to return to barracks and end their revolt, two spokesmen told reporters in the city of Bouake on Tuesday.
