At Least 12 People Killed in Ivory Coast in Election Day Violence

HeadlineNov 02, 2020

In Ivory Coast, at least 12 people were killed during protests Saturday as voters headed to the polls. Anti-government protests intensified in the weeks leading up to the election as opponents say President Alassane Ouattara’s bid for a third term is a violation of the constitutional two-term limit. As early results show Ouattara in a commanding lead, opposition leaders are calling for a “civilian transition” from his government. Al Jazeera reports at least 30 people were killed in pre-election violence.
