Anti-French Violence Erupts Again in Ivory Coast

An angry mob overruns the Abidjan airport in Ivory Coast, taunting French passengers trying to leave the country. The crowd's anger is stoked by concessions in a peace pact brokered by the French in an effort to end a four-month civil war. NPR's Lynn Neary talks to New York Times correspondent Somini Sengupta.
