Thousands displaced by Ivorian violence

Cote d'Ivoire's population paying a heavy price amid political strife.


    The mass exodus of people fleeing Cote d'Ivoire's violence is continuing, with tens of thousands more having crossed the border into Liberia in recent weeks.

    Makeshift camps are also being erected in Cote d'Ivoire to shelter families there.

    Schools, churches and hospitals in the capital are overflowing with people, as the endless political gridlock has serious consequences for the country’s population.
