    Thousands of people in Ivory Coast, who fled their homes in the west of the country during the recent post-election violence, say they're too afraid to return home after villages were raided and hundreds killed in the fighting that toppled former President Laurent Gbagbo.

    A few men have dared to return but to an uncertain future. The Western part of the country is still tense and it could take time before the most vulnerable feel safe enough to rebuild their lives.
