French soldiers were deployed in a suburb of Abidjan on Thursday which has been plagued by looting as forces loyal to internationally recognised president Alassane Ouattara encircle the city, sources said.

Soldiers from the 900-strong Licorne force intervened after looting in Zone 4, a sector south of the city home to several European citizens, mostly French, said several sources.
