800 casualties in Ivory Coast’s fierce fighting

More than 800 people stated to have been killed in the Ivory Coast city of Duekoue during this week, as opponent forces carry on fighting for power.

ICRC- International Committee of the Red Cross members called Duekoue and said the level and violence of the killings were dreadful. The city was seized by the activists favoring UN-recognized president Alassane Ouattara this week.
His forces have surrounded enemy Laurent Gbagbo in the key city of Abidjan. Mr. Ouattara was worldwide accepted as president after winning a surplus vote in November, but M Gbagbo also said victory and denied to step down office.
A curfew named by Mr. Ouattara from 2100 GMT to 0600 GMT in Abidjan stays in place. Land and sea borders remain closed, however on Friday the country's air space was revived.
This week a severe fighting seen in Duekoue, and help agencies have informed again and again that the civilian population are being targeted by the violence. ICRC spokeswoman Dorothea Krimitsas told we have got reported that near about 800 persons were killed on 29 March in inter-collective fighting.
The incident is so cruel on account its level and violence. She said that we have criticized direct assaults on defenseless people and assured both the parties to protect the civilian people that are under your control. Most of area of  Duekoue has been evacuated by the severe fighting since Monday.
Thousands of people have been run away within few days and are trying to trace a shelter in churches and town halls and a large number of people have crossed the Ivory Coast’s and entered into Liberia.
Till now it is not clear whether Mr Ouattara's supporters were concerned in the killings but Duekoue has been under their control since Tuesday. The United Nations human rights office says it has obtained news of huge human rights abuse committed by both sides in the clash
The national army has not shown any reaction since Mr Ouattara's forces started a nasty to quit Mr Gbagbo on Monday, sweeping down from the north to hold the capital, Yamoussoukro, and the key port of San Pedro. But they have not been able to beat those still faithful to the ex-president in the areas of Abidjan.
There were severe fighting on Friday outside the presidential palace and the headquarters of state television in the upper market district of Cocody. Fighting was also reported in the Plateau and Agban areas. The facts for the dead and injured persons were not available. The residents of Abidjan say they are worried to leave their homes.
A spokesman for Mr Gbagbo's Ivorian Popular Front (FPI) said, Gbagbo is going nowhere because he is the voted president of Ivory Coast. But Western diplomats say it is not possible for Mr. Gbagbo to run defeat, and it is not obvious if he will come out of this alive.
Patrick Achi, a spokesman for Mr Ouattara, said there was no chance for Mr Gbagbo to stand down peacefully. "He should stand test in the International Criminal Court, which is the only principal which proves the merit.
