Jun 10, 2011 Cote d'Ivoire: No War, but No Security
"Between May 13 and 25, Human Rights Watch interviewed 132
victims and witnesses to violence by both sides during the
battle for Abidjan and in the weeks after Gbagbo's arrest.
Killings, torture, and inhumane treatment by Ouattara's armed
forces continued while a Human Rights Watch researcher was in
Abidjan, with clear ethnic targeting during widespread acts of
reprisal and intimidation." - Human Rights Watch
Feb 28, 2011 Cote d'Ivoire: Crisis Facts & Debates
There is a real threat of return to open civil war in Côte
d'Ivoire, driven primarily by the failure of former President
Laurent Gbagbo to admit electoral defeat. But despite a broad
international consensus on the election results, the presence of UN
peacekeeping forces, and active mediation efforts, there is no
consensus on what measures would actually help rather than run the
risk of accelerating the turn to violence.
Feb 28, 2011 Côte d'Ivoire: Human Rights Reports
"The political stalemate resulting from the elections has been
characterized by the use of excessive force by supporters of Mr.
Laurent Gbagbo, including elements of the security forces loyal to
him, to repress public demonstrations, harassment and
intimidation, incitement to ethnic and political violence,
arbitrary arrest and detention, sexual violence, torture, enforced
disappearances, and extrajudicial killings." - Report by United
Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Navi Pillay, February
