Group raps Ivory Coast for post-vote violence

Human Rights Watch alleges President Alassane Outtara has not prosecuted culprits of post-election unrest.

    Since May 2011, when President Alassane Ouattara was elected, the Ivory Coast has been relatively peaceful.

    A new report by Human Rights Watch, however, says the government has failed to adequately prosecute all of those responsible for post-election violence before Ouattara’s inauguration.

    The group warns that because justice has so far been one sided, instability may follow.
