ABIDJAN (Reuters) - Two spokesmen for a group of 8,400 mutinous soldiers in Ivory Coast told Reuters on Monday that they had rejected an agreement proposed by the government to end their four-day mutiny over unpaid bonuses.

"They proposed 5 million CFA francs (each) to be paid tomorrow. But we want 7 million to be paid in one payment and immediately ," Sergeant Seydou Kone said.
