[ via France 24 ] 10 Jan

FRANCE 24’s Observers Team has been able to obtain and verify video documenting the brutal lynching of three suspected militants loyal to former Ivorian president Laurent Gbagbo in Abobo, a suburb just outside of the main city of Abidjan.

The footage constitutes the first authenticated images of an act of violence against suspected Gbagbo supporters during last year’s post-electoral conflict.

An estimated 3,000 people were killed in the clashes that followed Ivory Coast’s disputed 2010 presidential elections between Gbagbo and now-President Alassane Ouattara.
