A thousand civilians have been found massacred in a small town in Ivory Coast amid worsening civil conflict in the West African state.
The victims were discovered by aid agency workers in Duekoue. Some had been shot and others hacked to death with machetes.
It was not clear last night who carried out the attacks, but the area is thought to be in the control of supporters of Alassane Ouattara, who won Ivory Coast’s election late last year. President Laurent Gbagbo has refused to step down.
Red Cross spokesman Dorothea Krimitsas warned: ‘There is a risk this kind of event can happen again.’
Last night 10,000 refugees crowded into Duekoue’s Catholic church, guarded by 1,000 United Nations peacekeepers.
Heavy fighting has continued in the main city, Abidjan, as Ouattara’s forces battle for the presidential palace.

The coldness of men’s hearts who choose to murder people, and have no morals and consciences are clearly on the path to hell. It is very clear in the Word of God, that those who murder and do not repent from their sin, are of the devil.
“You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.”
That we are in the end times, is pretty clear to those that truly follow Jesus Christ. But to all, difficult times will continue until our Messiah Jesus Christ comes with great power and Glory.
2 Timothy 3:1-5,7
“But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of god; holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.”
And to all those that choose not to repent from their sins, Jesus Christ Our King is clear as to where you will end up. It is not too late to repent, and accept Jesus Christ as your Savior.
But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.
