Ivory Coast families waiting to go home

With UN peacekeepers still protecting the war displaced, the refugee situation in West African nation remains tense.

    The UN says people who have been displaced by cross-border fighting in western Ivory Coast are too afraid to go home.

    Thousands of families are still in camps, one year after deadly election-related violence in the West African nation.

    The situation remains tense: UN peacekeepers are still protecting those who were displaced during last year's civil war, after Laurent Gbagbo refused to concede defeat in presidential elections.

    More UN and Ivorian soldiers have been deployed in the affected region, but people worry there will be more attacks.
