Heavy gunfire erupts in Ivory Coast's second city of Bouake - witnesses

ABIDJAN (Reuters) - Heavy gunfire erupted on Monday at the entrance and centre of Ivory Coast’s second city of Bouake, witnesses said.

The shooting followed similar bursts of gunfire in the commercial capital Abidjan amid a military operation aimed at ending a mutiny by soldiers demanding bonus payments.
