UNITED NATIONS — UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said forces loyal to the Ivory Coast president who refuses to cede power have attacked six UN vehicles, injuring two people Thursday.

Laurent Gbagbo's loyalists burned one military vehicle belonging to the UN peacekeeping mission, Ban's spokesman Martin Nesirky said.

Nesirky said the five other vehicles were attacked but not burned. In one attack, on an ambulance, a doctor and driver were injured.
