    Ivory Coast militia leader Ibrahim Coulibaly was killed Wednesday by forces of the country's new President Alassane Ouattara during an offensive, the defence ministry spokesman told AFP.

    After the raid, Coulibaly "took a whole family hostage. The FRCI (government troops) fired two warning shots and he responded with heavy fire. The FRCI had no other choice but to respond and the response was fatal for him," said Leon Alla Kouakou.
