5th March 2011, Comments 0 comments

The International Criminal Court is ready to "move fast" against the perpetrators of crimes against civilians in Ivory Coast, it's deputy prosecutor told AFP on Saturday.

"One thing is clear, if it (the situation) reaches the gravity threshold, definitely the ICC will move fast", Bensouda said, describing Thursday's killing of women protesting against strongman Laurent Gbagbo as "appalling."

"The ICC is ready. We are collecting information, we are analysing information, and we will be ready in a very short time to move."
