Political Unrest in Ivory Coast

Friday, December 03, 2010

Challenger Alassane Ouattara beat Ivory Coast President Laurent Gbagbo in a recent election in that country, but President Gbagbo says he's not going anywhere. The current president is leveling accusations of election fraud at his elected replacement, and violence has erupted in the country — witnesses say eight Ouattara supporters were killed by gunmen at their headquarters. Borders are now being closed, and foreign news outlets are being blocked from the country by the regime in power.  

We're joined by Adam Nossiter, West Africa's bureau chief for The New York Times, for more on this story.
