Gbagbo arrested “with French help and a slap” (The Guardian)

TUESDAY, 12/4/2011: “Humiliating”, “stripped of dignity”, “highly symbolic”… papers in Africa and around the world agree that scenes of Gbagbo’s arrest yesterday were mortifying… even comparable to the fall of Saddam Hussein. We also look at analysis of France’s role in the events.
