Ivory Coast: the Duékoué massacre
Issued on: Modified:
In western Ivory Coast, the town of Duékoué witnessed a bloodbath. Mass killings took place at the end of March when the town was captured by forces loyal to President Ouattara. 30,000 people who fled those massacres are now crammed into refugee camps in unhygienic conditions. Most of them voted for Gbagbo and they now fear returning home - they are afraid of reprisals.
