Abou Fofana's status pending

Abou Fofana was scheduled to be deported this morning, after his bid for refugee status was denied by Citizenship and Immigration Canada. It considers Fofana a war criminal, because he collected tolls at a checkpoint for the Rebel Group Forces Nouvelles in the Ivory Coast.

His flight was finally cancelled last night, though it's not clear why this decision was taken.

He has been living in Trois-Rivières since 2008, and has a 16 month-old son. This morning we spoke to his wife, who is now pregnant with twins.
