YAMOUSSOUKRO, Ivory Coast (AP) _ French and U.S. forces launched a helicopter evacuation Sunday of a second Ivory Coast city, ferrying Westerners from the northern rebel stronghold of Korhogo.

Like Bouake, the first city evacuated this week, Korhogo has been declared a war zone by the government and is under threat of attack.
