A Catholic charity in Cote D'Ivoire says 1,000 people have been killed in the western town of Duekoue.

It is still unclear who might be responsible for the killings, but civilians are increasingly bearing the brunt of the continued stand-off between Allasane Ouattara and Laurent Gbagbo.

Forces loyal to Ouattara, the internationally recognised winner of November's election, are closing in on territory still held by President Laurent Gbagbo.
