Côte d'Ivoire: 'They looked at his identity card and shot him dead': Six months of post-electoral violence in Côte d’Ivoire

By Amnesty International, , Index number: AFR 31/002/2011

The violence that followed the disputed presidential election in November 2010 has caused the most serious humanitarian and human rights crisis in Côte d'Ivoire in recent years. Hundreds of people have been unlawfully killed. Sexual violence was reported. Hundreds of thousands of people were forced to seek refuge in other regions of Côte d'Ivoire or in neighbouring countries. The conclusions in this report show that all parties to the conflict have committed crimes under international law, including war crimes and crimes against humanity.
