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.

    Al Jazeera's Caroline Malone reports.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
