The daughter of the deposed Ivory Coast president is asking Christians to pray for the safety of her parents.
Rumors have surfaced in the capital city of Abidjan that New Forces rebels have removed Laurent Gbagbo and his wife Simone from the Golf Hotel and have taken them to the rebel-controlled northern region of the country. If true, that would not bode well for them.
Marie (Gbagbo) Singleton says it's deja vu for her family. Her father, mother and brother were arrested by Alassane Quatarra when he was prime minister in 1992. She says Quatarra supporters beat her mother at that time and left her for dead. Ms. Singleton says this time, she's hired a team of lawyers to take legal action against Quatarra and his New Forces if they violate international law and her parent's rights.
Meanwhile, The Associated Press reports Quatarra's rebels have committed some new atrocities against Gbagbo supporters. AP also says witnesses saw United Nation's peacekeepers burying bodies.
I discuss the atrocities and other concerns about Ivory Coast in our exclusive interview with Ms. Singleton.
