Nowhere to run for Ivorians

Civilians brave the streets to stock food and water as violence takes a dramatic turn.

    UN planes have again targeted the home of Cote d'Ivoire's incumbent leader Laurent Gbagbo in the commercial capital of Abidjan.

    Gbagbo is refusing to cede power to his rival, Alassane Ouattara, who is internationally recognised to have won the November presidential elections.

    Meanwhile, the city's terrified residents are coming out of hiding to search for water and food.

    Al Jazeera's Khadija Magardie reports.  Some viewers may find some of the images in the report disturbing.
