It's June the 9th 2011 and I'm in Sassandra, Côte d’Ivoire. Over the past two days we've been interviewing survivors of a wave of violence in early May in five fairly isolated villages in southern Côte d’Ivoire about 250 kilometres west of Abidjan. We are still piecing the information together but what is emerging is a picture of an ugly mix of scirmishes between soldiers and militias, targeted killings, and inter-communal violence that left around 200 people dead, scores more badly injured, hundreds of homes burned, wide spread looting and destruction, and at least 1,000 villagers displaced.
