ABIDJAN - Gunmen shot dead four people on Tuesday near a roadblock run by youth supporters of Ivory Coast's Laurent Gbagbo in the Abidjan suburb of Deux Plateau, several witnesses said.

"I'm not sure what happened but we heard a burst of shooting near the youth roadblock just behind the supermarket," said Marco Abade, a resident of the leafy, middle class neighborhood.

"We heard screaming and there were four bodies of youths on the road," Abade added, saying he did not know if the dead were members of a pro-Gbagbo youth militia, who have set up roadblocks all over town.
