Seven people were shot dead on Sunday during an attack on a beach in a resort town in Ivory Coast carried out by at least four gunmen, a witness said.
“I saw seven dead that I filmed. There were four attackers. I was swimming when it started and I ran away,” said Dramane Kima, who showed the video of the bodies to Reuters. He also took pictures of grenades and ammunition clips that he believed had been left behind by the attackers.
Gunfire broke out at the Ivory Coast resort town of Grand Bassam on Sunday, diplomatic sources and a witness said.
Grand Bassam, about 40 km east of the commercial capital Abidjan, is a weekend retreat for Abidjan residents and its beaches, bars and hotels are also popular with Westerners.
