ABIDJAN - The leader of a militia that helped Ivory Coast President Alassane Ouattara defeat rival Laurent Gbagbo was killed in a gun battle on Wednesday after he and his men refused to obey a presidential order to disarm.

"I can confirm that Ibrahim Coulibaly was killed during fighting today," Defense Ministry spokesman Captain Alla Kouakou Leon told Reuters.

Coulibaly's 'Invisible Commando' insurgents had fought alongside what is now the Ivorian national army to topple Gbagbo, but had been accused of not meeting a deadline to lay down their arms and join the new army.
