Ivory Coast: June 2, 2005


Fighting erupted in the west, near the Liberian border. A Guere village was attacked by  Dioula tribesmen.  Over a hundred died, and many more were wounded. Nearby Ivory Coast troops refused to intervene, and the killing stopped when UN peacekeepers arrived hours later. The Ivory Coast army is more interested in shaking down travelers  along the main roads (where the soldiers establish roadblocks and demand bribes to let people pass.) The two tribes have been fighting over land for a long time.
