Election clashes in Ivory Coast

An office of Ivory Coast opposition leader Alassane Ouattara has been attacked in the main city Abidjan, with unconfirmed reports of several dead, BBC reports. The violence broke out despite a night-time curfew, as a deadline passed to release the results of Sunday’s presidential election run-off. Supporters of President Laurent Gbagbo are preventing the results from being declared, saying there was fraud in the north, where Mr Ouattara is popular. The election is the first for a decade.
