One killed as clashes erupt across I.Coast ahead of election

Ivorian fire fighters try to extinguish a burning bus in Yopougon district of Abidjan on September 10, 2015One person was killed as protesters torched vehicles and clashed with police in several Ivory Coast towns on Thursday, witnesses said, in the first major outbreak of trouble ahead of next month’s presidential election. The protests were called by part of the opposition a day after the release by the Constitutional Council of the official list of 10 contenders running in the October 25 poll, including incumbent Alassane Ouattara. Opposition groups urged anti-Ouattara marches on the grounds that both of his parents were not Ivorian — the same objection cited ahead of deadly unrest in 2010-2011 that left more than 3,000 dead following a presidential poll.
