In Ivory Coast, at least six people have been killed and more than 100 were wounded in recent days as protests intensify against President Alassane Ouattara’s announcement last week that he would run for a third term in upcoming October elections. Police have reportedly used tear gas and shot at protesters. Opponents say Ouattara’s bid for reelection is a violation of the constitutional two-term limit.
