Ivory Coast Shooting At Grand Bassam Beach Resort 'Leaves At Least 14 Dead'

Post by cat woman on Fri Apr 08, 2016 7:46 pm

An attack at a hotel popular with Western tourists in the Ivory Coast has left more than a dozen people dead.

A spokeswoman for the Foreign Office said officials were "urgently" trying to establish whether any British nationals had been caught up in the incident.

The Ivory Coast's president Alassane Ouattara said 14 civilians, six attackers, and two special forces operatives were killed in the attack on three hotels in Grand-Bassam, a popular weekend destination for both Ivorian nationals and foreigners. Four Europeans are believed to be among the deceased.
