ABIDJAN (AFP) - Ivory Coast has charged 58 army officers close to ousted president Laurent Gbagbo and is holding 40 of them in custody, a military justice official said Thursday. Ange Kessi, the west African country's military prosecutor, told AFP that 58 army officers from Gbagbo's regime were charged over crimes committed during the crisis that erupted after November polls when Gbagbo refused to concede defeat to Alassane Ouattara. Among the top pro-Gbagbo officers detained is Brunot Dogbo Ble, former commander of the feared Republican Guard.
