Fears of fresh violence in Ivory Coast

Supporters of one of the two rival presidents in Ivory Coast say they intend to take to the streets again, a day after gun battles in the main city of Abidjan left at least 20 dead.

On Thursday Alassane Ouattara's backers tried to march on the headquarters of state TV, but clashed with troops loyal to his rival, Laurent Gbagbo. Each man claims to have won last month's presidential election.

The BBC's John James describes the scene in Abidjan.
