COTE D'IVOIRE - Brutal deteriorating situation in Abobo

Defence Forces and Security (FDS), loyal to Laurent Gbagbo, launched on March 12 a major offensive, supported by tanks and helicopters against the Abobo neighborhood in Abidjan. The shelling with heavy weapons positions of pro-Ouattara insurgents killed at least eight people, reports the newspaper, that other parts of the capital have been affected.

Camp Alassane Ouattara described the operation as "indiscriminate killing of innocent civilians" and "offensive of desperation."
