Mutinying soldiers in Ivory Coast's second largest city, Bouake, opened fire on a local official's house late on Saturday shortly after the defence minister appeared to have brokered a deal there to end a two-day revolt, a Reuters witness said.

Defense Minister Alain-Richard Donwahi was trapped inside by the shooting, unable to head back to Abidjan, he said.
