BOUAKE, Ivory Coast (Reuters) – Heavy gunfire erupted yesterday in Ivory Coast’s two largest cities of Abidjan and Bouake as the military said it pressed an operation to quash a four-day nationwide army mutiny over bonus payments, witnesses said. Residents also reported gunfire in the port city and major cocoa hub of San Pedro.
 
The soldiers staged the revolt over delayed bonus payments promised by the government after a mutiny in January but not fully paid.
