Ivorians head to polls for local elections

Voting closely watched due to 2010's post-election violence in which more than 3,000 people were killed.

    Ivory Coast will go to the polls in a closely watched vote to elect local leaders on Sunday.

    The country's presidential elections in 2010 was overshadowed by subsequent violence in which 3,000 people were killed.

    Those elections were being monitored by a 10,000-strong UN peacekeepers force, but Sunday's elections will be managed by Ivorian security only.
