Ivory Coast's economy bounces back

Two years after the end of the conflict in Ivory Coast which left more than three thousand dead, the economy is bouncing back.  Months of violence erupted when former President Laurent Gbagbo refused to step down in the 2010 elections – but investors are now beginning to return and Ivory Coast’s economy is seeing a revival.  GDP grew by 9.8% last year.
