Ivorian singers "not afraid" after al-Qaeda attack

Ivorian musicians have collaborated to release a song saying they are "not afraid" after Islamist militants killed 19 people on a beach.

The song "Meme Pas Peur", meaning not a bit afraid, was filmed on Grand Bassam beach, where the gunmen opened fire.

The lyrics include the lines "in Ivory Coast we're on our feet".

Some lyrics are directed at the militants including: "you kill innocent people and "you won't go to paradise".
