Cyber crime is on the rise in the Ivory Coast.

According to the government, it received more complaints of cyber criminality in the first half of 2013 than any other country on the continent, making it Africa's unlikely capital of "brouteurs" - Ivorian slang for cyber criminals.

The government is making a concerted effort to crack down on the problem.
