ABIDJAN - French forces have been deployed in some parts of Ivory Coast's main city of Abidjan, three sources said on Thursday.

One source said soldiers from the 1,000-strong French Licorne force in Ivory Coast had been deployed in Zone 4, in the south of the city.

A Western military source said others were sent to rescue some French nationals being attacked in the Deux Plateaux neighbourhood by youth supporters of Laurent Gbagbo, the incumbent leader who has refused to leave office since a disputed election last November.

France's armed forces declined to immediately comment.
