Ivory Coast gears up for Laurent Gbagbo’s return

Published
Ten years after he was arrested for crimes against humanity, Ivory Coast's former President Laurent Gbagbo is set to return home on Thursday.
The International Criminal Court acquitted him of those charges - which date back to 2011.
That is when he refused to step down after losing the presidential election, sparking months of violence.
Gbagbo is expected to get a warm welcome from his supporters, but he remains a highly controversial figure.
