Ivory Coast: Anti-Gbagbo protesters shot in Adibjan

Four people have been shot dead in Ivory Coast's main city, Abidjan, after a march to protest about the killing of seven female demonstrators last week.

The protest march in Abidjan's central Treichville district had passed off peacefully before shots were heard, journalists say.

The shooting has been blamed on rogue army officers supporting disputed President Laurent Gbagbo. He refuses to cede power although his rival Alassane Ouattara is internationally recognised as the winner of last year's poll.
