A combination of two pictures taken in 2010 in Abidjan shows (at L) incumbent Ivorian president Laurent Gbagbo and (at R) beleaguered would-be Ivory Coast president Alassane Ouattara, who on December 21, 2010 urged the Ivorian people to rise up in a campaign of civil disobedience against defiant strongman Laurent Gbagbo. In a statement issued from the hotel where it survives behind a wall of UN peacekeepers, Ouattara's camp accused Gbagbo's loyalist security forces of murdering scores of civilians in overnight death squad raids.
