Mutinying soldiers in Ivory Coast agree to return to barracks

BOUAKE, Ivory Coast (Reuters) - Mutinying soldiers in Ivory Coast agreed on Saturday to return to their barracks after the government accepted their grievances concerning bonus pay and living conditions, a member of the uprising close to the negotiations said.

"It's over," Sergeant Mamadou Kone told Reuters. "Some of our soldiers will remain in place to manage the security of shops and banks, but the majority of soldiers will return to barracks beginning tonight".
