A failed coup in Ivory Coast that followed more than a year of turmoil further diminished hopes Monday that the country could regain its reputation as a bastion of peace and stability in West Africa. Mutinous soldiers seized state broadcast facilities overnight and called on supporters to join their attempt to grab power from an administration that has been in office less than three months. By noon Monday, Ivorian government officials reported that loyalist forces had quashed the coup attempt.

A day after proclaiming himself president of this West African nation, Gen. Robert Guei was forced from power Wednesday by a people's revolt, apparently the first successful effort by civilians in the region to nullify questionable election results. Defying threats of violence and military retaliation, tens of thousands of residents and renegade soldiers flocked to the streets of this coastal city for a second day of protests that drove Guei from office.
