Demobilized rebel fighters seized control of one of the main roads leading into Ivory Coast's second city, Bouake, early on Monday, erecting barricades and blocking traffic, a soldier and a local resident said.

The soldier, one of the leaders of a separate group that led a series of mutinies earlier this year, said the ex-fighters were demanding payments from the government as well as integration into the army.
