Côte d'Ivoire: UN Fears Escalating Ethnic Clashes

United Nations — United Nations officials said they were "gravely concerned" Wednesday that the current political deadlock over recent presidential elections in Cote d'Ivoire could ultimately lead to genocide, as both sides of the conflict consolidated their forces.
Addressing reporters at the U.N. headquarters in New York, the Secretary-General's Special Advisors on the Prevention of Genocide and the Responsibility to Protect said "urgent action" was needed to prevent further loss of life, and failure to do so could push the West African nation to the "brink of destruction".!/Newgenafrica
