Hundreds of bodies found after Ivory Coast massacre

The UN secretary general has urged Ivory Coast's internationally backed president to investigate hundreds of deaths blamed partly on his supporters.

Ban Ki-moon said he was "concerned and alarmed" about the reports from the town of Duekoue, but Alassane Ouattara says his followers are not involved.

The BBC's Andrew Harding, in Duekoue, says UN workers have found hundreds of bodies.
