ABIDJAN - Forces loyal to Ivory Coast's Alassane Ouattara marched into the major cocoa exporting port of San Pedro overnight, two residents who saw them said, and shooting erupted in the town with forces backing his rival.
"Shooting started at around 9pm (2100 GMT) then we saw the rebels' vehicles drive into the town," said one resident, who declined to be named for fear of reprisals.
"Everyone's staying indoors, but we're still hearing a lot of gunfire."
