Hundreds killed in Ivory Coast town, Duekoue

Aid agencies say as many as 800 people have been massacred in a single town, as widespread political violence continues to affect Ivory Coast.

The International Committee of the Red Cross says the attacks happened in Duekoue in the west of the country on Tuesday, after it was captured by fighters loyal to Alassane Ouattara.

The ICRC's Kelnor Panglung says the scale and brutality of the killings was shocking.
