Soldiers shoot, block roads in northern Ivory Coast city

ABIDJAN -- Soldiers fired shots and sealed off roads leading into the northern Ivory Coast town of Odienne on Friday, a local resident said, as anger at a decision by some leaders of a group of army mutineers to drop demands for bonus payments appeared to spread around the country.
"At around 8 a.m. (0800 GMT) some shots were fired in town. And I've just heard shots fired south of town," said the resident. "You can't enter or exit the city."
