French and Ivorian gendarmes are to patrol Ivory Coast main city Abidjan as newly installed President Alassane Ouattara tries to stamp out insecurity, France's defence minister said Wednesday.

"Ivorian and French gendarmes will patrol Abidjan to show that the rule of law is being established," Gerard Longuet told parliament after ousted leader Laurent Gbagbo was placed under house arrest following his capture Monday.
