The UN Security Council has removed a ban on Ivory Coast's diamond trade and eased an arms embargo. The West African nation has been pushing for months to legally restart exporting diamonds. The diamond embargo came into force in 2005, following civil war that broke out in 2002, sparked by a failed coup attempt against then-President Laurent Gbagbo.
