LONDON, May 15 (Reuters) - Ivory Coast's dollar-denominated bonds fell on Monday as two of the country's biggest cities were hit by gunfire and fighting, with the military pressing to crush a nationwide army mutiny over bonuses.
Data from Tradeweb showed that bonds maturing in 2024 fell 0.8 cent in price to a three-week low while the 2028 issue lost 1.2 cent to hit its lowest level in 10 days.
