Ivory Coast is one of the biggest producers of chocolate in the world!
|The civil war|
That would mean, that EVERYTHING made out of chocolate, would become more expensive which would be bad... very bad to my wallet!
Well thats not the worst of this story, because there was a civil war in the Ivory Coast, which was mainly on killing civilians, hiring mercenaries and basically was an all-out war.... About the same as Lybia now has, but this one had a lot less media attention.
Outtara had put a ban on cacao export, so that gbagbo could no longer receive income from the chocolate sector, because of the drop of cacao supplies, the prices went up.

But now he has been captured
On 11 April, Ouattara's forces stormed Gbagbo's residence and arrested him. The final assault was assisted by French forces using helicopters and armoured vehicles, although the actual capture was made by Ouattara's troops. Gbagbo, his wife, son and about 50 members of his entourage were captured unharmed and were taken to the Golf Hotel, Ouattara's headquarters, where they were placed under United Nations guard.
