Five people shot during anti-mutiny march in Ivory Coast – witness

ABIDJAN: At least five people were wounded by gunfire during protests against an army mutiny in Ivory Coast’s second city, Bouake, on Saturday, according to a witness, as popular opposition to the three-day revolt over bonus payments grew.

The witness saw five people being treated for gunshots at Bouake’s main hospital following an attempt by city residents to stage a protest march. Two other protesters, who had been beaten, were also being treated.
