At least twelve people have been shot dead including four Europeans by four gunmen on Sunday in an attack at Grand Bassam, a beach resort town about forty kilometers from Abidjan, an officer from the national police said.
“For the moment, we have a total of 12 dead, including four Europeans … We don’t know yet if there are others. We are doing clean-up operations right now,” the officer told security forces during a briefing attended by a Reuters reporter.
Earlier, a witness, Dramane Kima, who showed a video of the bodies spoke to Reuters saying: “I saw seven dead that I filmed. There were four attackers. I was swimming when it started and I ran away.”
He also took pictures of grenades and ammunition clips that he believed had been left behind by the attacker
