ABIDJAN, Ivory Coast — Forces loyal to the two men claiming Ivory Coast's presidency clashed in the streets of the commercial capital Thursday, killing at least 20 people and bolstering fears that the world's top cocoa producer is on the verge of another civil war.

Explosions and gunfire were heard throughout Abidjan — once known as the "Paris of Africa" for its cosmopolitan nightlife and chic boutiques.

An errant rocket-propelled grenade struck an outer perimeter wall of the US Embassy, but no injuries were reported and the damage was minor, State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley said in Washington.
