Genocide Alerts: Cote D’Ivoire

Genocide Watch Alert


Although the civil war of 2002 came to an end in 2004, Côte d’Ivoire has ever since been divided between north and south. The split is along religious and ethnic lines. The presidential elections in October and November 2010 were the trigger leading to an eruption of violence. The crimes that took place in Côte d’Ivoire in the aftermath of the elections may be qualified as genocidal massacres, though they were not a full genocide.
