A rebellion in Ivory Coast over soldiers’ pay appears to have passed.
Residents and correspondents in the second city, Bouake, described calm on the streets – a day after troops briefly seized the defence minister.
The rebellion had spread from there to other cities, including the commercial hub, Abidjan, but that city, too, is now quiet.
A deal was struck between the mutinous soldiers and the government on Saturday, though details are scant.
The mutiny began in Bouake early on Friday with soldiers firing rocket-launchers, and on Saturday took over the army headquarters in Abidjan.
Protests also took place in the cities of Man, Daloa, Daoukro, Odienne and Korhogo.
Some of the mutineers were thought to be former rebels who joined the army after the conflict.
The rebels swept into Abidjan from Bouake in 2011, helping Mr Ouattara take power after his predecessor Laurent Gbagbo – now on trial at the International Criminal Court – refused to accept defeat in elections the previous year.
