Abid­jan: At least 10 peo­ple have been killed in a port town in south­ern Ivory Coast this week, the mayor said yes­ter­day, as sup­port­ers and op­po­nents of Pres­i­dent Alas­sane Ou­at­tara trade blame for ris­ing vi­o­lence be­fore the Oc­to­ber 31 elec­tion.

The au­thor­i­ties de­creed a cur­few on Thurs­day in re­sponse to the killings in Dabou, which Mayor Jean­Claude Niangne said were car­ried out by men armed with as­sault ri­fles and ma­chetes. — Reuters
