Ivory Coast

Charley Gon, a young supporter of Laurent Gbagbo, displays a specimen 100 franc note in a fictional Ivorian currency, in the Yopougon district of Abidjan, Ivory Coast, Saturday, Jan. 8, 2011. Specimens of the “Ivorian Currency of the Resistance” (MIR by its french acronym) are circulating among Gbagbo loyalists after state owned media have discussed the possibility of Ivory Coast quitting the West African franc CFA zone and establishing its own currency. The regional central bank has recognized Alassane Ouattara as the head of state and revoked Gbagbo’s access to state accounts. (AP Photo/Rebecca Blackwell)
