Violence in Ivory Coast

Host Bob Edwards talks to Washington Post West Africa Correspondent Doug Farrah about the pre-election violence in Abidjan, Ivory Coast. Supporters of Muslim former Prime Minister Alassane Ouattara fought security forces, after their candidate was excluded from next Sunday's parliamentary elections. At least 20 people have died in the violence.
