Civil war starts in Côte d'Ivoire.
U.S. plan to invade Iraq: The Bush administration pressures US Congress to pass a resolution giving Bush authority to use all means he determines to be appropriate, including force to oust Saddam Hussein and disarm Iraq.
An attempted coup by disaffected former soldiers of Côte d'Ivoire was put down, with the death of the alleged coup leader, General Robert Guéï, a former military dictator of the country. Guéï was killed when his car refused to stop at a roadblock in downtown Abidjan. Rebels continue in control of the cities of Bouaké and Korhogo.
