"French forces in coordination with the United Nations took over the Ivory Coast’s main airport on Sunday so that planes could land and foreigners evacuated as fighting continued in Abidjan between rival presidents. France said it has sent another 300 troops, bringing its peace-keeping forces up to about 1,400 in the Ivory Coast, said Col. Thierry Burkhard, a French Defense Ministry spokesman." (04/03/11)
