Cote d'Ivoire: Six Wounded In Bouake, Still In The Hands Of Mutineers

Six people were wounded by bullets on Sunday in Bouake, the country's second city still controlled by mutinous soldiers who launched a new wave of grumbling in Cote d'Ivoire on Friday.

The mutineers fired Sunday in the air in Bouaké to prevent the population from leaving home. A woman, mother of three children, and five men were hit by shots and were treated at the Bouaké University Hospital, an AFP journalist said. On Saturday, mutineers involved in the movement had already shot at two people in Bouake (center) and Korhogo (north), seriously wounding them.

On Sunday, the mutineers took positions around the Police Prefecture roundabout in downtown Bouaké and fired into the air to prevent a protest rally against their actions, Said AFP.

Residents, who had met on Saturday, had indeed decided to demonstrate this Sunday to demonstrate their opposition to the mutineers. ... more about Jeune Afrique
