BOUAKE, May 16 (Reuters) - Some Ivory Coast soldiers who participated in a five-day mutiny received notification from their banks that bonus payments were credited to their accounts, a mutiny spokesman said, after a deal with the government was agreed to end the uprising.
“Some of them are getting messages from their banks. The transfers are being made. It’s 5 million CFA francs ($8,400) that’s arrived,” said Sergeant Seydou Kone.
