Ivory Coast: November 27, 2003


There are allegations that pro-government militias are continuing to kill, torture and harass civilians with impunity. Drawn mostly from the south central Bete tribe (the same as the president's), they were targeting mainly immigrants from other West African countries along with other ethnic groups.

Meanwhile, unchecked disease threatens parts of the country. With relief agencies providing the backbone of healthcare in the rebel-held north, that region could face major outbreaks of meningitis and typhoid as the dry season sets in. The months of November, December and January are critical periods for outbreaks of these killer diseases. - Adam Geibel
