So things have heated up in the Ivory Coast:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-12960308

It says UN and French helicopters have opened fire on forces attacking civilians. What aviation assets does the UN have in Ivory Coast and where do they originate from?

Are they donated from countries/purchased/seized/UN operated?

Also what French aircraft are there?

UN is using 3 MI-24 and 2 MI-8, operated by Ukraine. These were until very recently based in Liberia.

France seems to be operating Cougars as transports, and I've seen Gazelles armed with 2x HOT missiles on the starboard pylon, rocket/gun pods on the port. France also seems to have a Transall or two in theater, but no fast strike aircraft.
