More than 50 die as human rights violations continue in Ivory Coast

In a growing phenomenon across the country, Ivory Coast is facing serious human rights violations especially after over 50 are now dead, according to the Birmingham Star.

Current Ivory Coast leader, Laurent Gbagbo, with the protection of the army, is refusing to leave office for newly elected, and arch-rival, Alassane Ouattara.

With turmoil throughout the country arising, the United Nations operation in Ivory Coast got wind of hundreds of people being abducted with some actually found dead. Pro-Gbagbo forces are being blamed for the abductions and killings.
