A distraught eye-witnesses has described how gunmen yelled ‘Allahu Akbar’ before gunning down women and children near a hotel in Ivory Coast.
A group of around 10 attackers armed with Kalashnikovs opened fire outside the Hotel Etoile du Sud in Grand-Bassam on the south coast of the country.
A police source said at least 12 people – including a five-year-old child – have been killed.
The hotel is popular with Western tourists and four Europeans are believed to be among the dead.
The eye-witness said: “There were three (shooters). He isn’t a Muslim. I saw a kid he had his head like this watching when they shot a woman.”
