Heavy Fighting Near Liberian Border

Heavy Gun battle has erupted between Ivorian government forces and the country’s rebels near the border with Liberia in Grand Gedeh County.

The fighting started Monday around the western town of Touloupleu inside Ivory Coast between the two groups.

Fleeing refugees entering Liberia told the New Dawn in Grand Gedeh the attackers seem to have outnumbered government troops, but heavy causalities were reported on both sides.

Some villagers (refugees) who deserted their areas and crossed into Liberia said the situation is very tense to the extent that the echo of gun sounds could be heard everywhere.

Some Liberians who were awaiting UNCHR repatriation program are said to have been caught between the fighting forces.
