Ivory Coast Gold

Ivory Coast Gold

In late 2011, museum authorities in Ivory Coast contacted Interpol after thieves stole historic gold jewellery, masks and statues worth an estimated $6m (£3.7m).
The thefts from the country's main museum took place during the recent battle for Abidjan between forces loyal to current President Alassane Ouattara and the former leader Laurent Gbagbo.
