    The United Nations and the French military have launched attacks in Cote d'Ivoire on weapons sites belonging to incumbent leader Laurent Gbagbo.

    Gbagbo's troops and forces loyal to the internationally recognised president Alassane Ouattara are battling to gain control of the commercial capital, Abidjan.

    Meanwhile, fresh reports have emerged of mass killings across the country. This report by Al Jazeera's Haru Mutasa contains pictures some viewers may find disturbing.
