Cote d'Ivoire: Security forces kill at least nine unarmed demonstrators

Eyewitnesses have told Amnesty International that at least nine unarmed protesters were killed today in Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire, during mass protests over a political deadlock following presidential elections.

The demonstrators were joining the mass street protests called by the internationally recognized president Alassane Ouattara following disputed elections. They were marching from various locations in the capital Abidjan in an attempt to seize the state broadcaster Radio Télévision ivorienne (RTI) when security forces opened fire at point blank range.
