    Mutinous soldiers in Ivory Coast have reopened roads into the second biggest city, Bouake.

    But they're continuing their revolt over pay.

    The government promised them more money in January - but it now says it can't afford it.

    And many locals are urging the soldiers to get back to work.

    Al Jazeera's Ahmed Idris reports from Abidjan, Ivory Coast.
