Ivory Coast's wounded continue to suffer

Hospitals are struggling to cope with a huge influx after months of post-election violence.

    After four months of deadly post-election violence, many of the Ivory Coast's wounded have limited access to medical attention. Now as relative calm sets in, hospitals are struggling to cope with a huge number of patients and dwindling supplies.

    We visit a hospital with 20 beds but over 90 patients. Doctors are worried this may only be the beginning of a major influx.
