Ivorian First Lady: trash peace accords

Simone Gbagbo, Côte d'Ivoire's Lady Macbeth, wants to trash the Ouagadougou accords that finally brought peace to her country. The Ivorian presidential spouse said that the state couldn't afford to integrate former northern rebels into the national army. She said they should instead be sent back to their villages. Sending waves of unemployed young males with no money and few skills other than war making isn't exactly the most brilliant idea to foster an already fragile national stability.
