UN-backed Ivory Coast Leader Accused in Massacres
April 3, 2011
The UN secretary general has urged Ivory Coast’s internationally-backed president to investigate hundreds of deaths blamed partly on his supporters.
Ban Ki-moon said he was “concerned and alarmed” about the reports, from the town of Duekoue, but Alassane Ouattara said his followers were not involved.
The BBC’s Andrew Harding, in Duekoue, says UN workers have found hundreds of bodies.
