Links about the situation in Côte d’Ivoire, Jan 14th 2011

Although the news have seemed to be slower about Côte d’Ivoire since the end of last year, the situation has been deteriorating, with daily violence in some areas of Abidjan (Abobo, Anyama) against civil populations, the discovery of a third mass grave around the city of Issia, and repeated acts of intimidation against the UN.
