UN Ambassador Warns of Genocide in Ivory Coast

Hosted by

Ivory Coast's newly appointed ambassador to the United Nations says his country is on the brink of genocide, as the result of the ongoing dispute over who won last month's presidential election. Ambassador Youssofuou Bamba was appointed to the UN by opposition candidate Alassane Ouattara, who is recognized by the African Union and the international community as the winner of the November 28 run-off. Colum Lynch writes for the Washington Post and Foreign Policy magazine.
