Caution in Côte d’Ivoire

This item appears on page 19 of the November 2009 issue.

The Department of State urges travelers to Côte d’Ivoire to exercise caution when traveling outside Abidjan. Within Abidjan, crimes such as mugging, robbery, burglary and carjacking pose the highest risk for visitors, who should be careful when stopped in heavy traffic or at roadblocks and should avoid travel outside the city after dark.
