Following the attack of Fakola, a town in Mali's southern region of Sikasso, close to the border with Ivory Coast, Ivory Coast government spokesman Bruno Kone said the country has taken specific measures to protect it against a spillover of violence from Mali. But he declined to give further details, for “need for operational secrecy”.
Spokesperson for UNOCI, Ivory Coast's United Nations peacekeeping mission said it was also reinforcing its “presence with an emphasis on tactical mobility.”
