- Story Text:French President Emmanuel Macron received wild cheers and applause from Ivorian crowds on Sunday (December 22) as he toured a new market project in the Ivory Coast city of Bouake.
Macron was in the city on the third and final day of his official visit to the Ivory Coast to pay tribute French and U.S. soldiers killed in the city 15 years ago.
Ivory Coast warplanes killed in November 2004 nine French soldiers and an American relief worker in a bombing raid of the French base in Bouake.
Macron is scheduled to depart to Niger's capital of Niamey on Sunday afternoon.
