It happened Monday according to UNOCI which says elements of the Forces Républicaines de Côte d’Ivoire (FRCI) fired at the helicopter, but failed to hit it.

UNOCI says the attack against its peacekeepers could be considered a war crime. It wants authorities to identify those responsible, so that they can be held accountable for their action.
