Ivory Coast searches for reconciliation

The arrest of former president Laurent Gbagbo on April 11 marked the start of a new era for Ivory Coast.

As the violence subsides, Ouattara now faces the daunting task of convincing Ivorians that he can be the guarantor of peace and reconciliation for a newly united nation.
