Hope is finally coming to the Ivory Coast after what has been a very brutal four months.  Laurent Gbagbo lost the presidental election by 8% to newly elected president Alassane Ouattara, however Gbagbo refused to step down.  This led to a brutal battle between the two parties.  A battle that has seen many of the country's citizen's trapped in between.
