 CPJ condemns attack on Journalist in Ivory Coast

New York, 17 Sep - (ANA) - An Ivoirian government security detail assaulted a journalist covering the eviction of a senior official’s family on Friday, seizing his equipment and leaving him bleeding and bruised, according to news reports. The Committee to Protect Journalists has condemned the attack by Ivorian government security detail on a journalist covering the eviction of a senior official's family during his equipment was seized leaving him bleeding and bruised. CPJ calls on the authorities to ensure the perpetrators are brought to justice. A police officer, a military soldier, and agents in plainclothes attacked Anderson Diédri, a reporter for the private daily Le Nouveau Courrier, as he interviewed and photographed a woman and her five children as they were being evicted from their home in Abidjan, according to local journalists and news reports. The woman’s husband, Albert Toikeusse Mabri, the minister of planning and development, had sought the eviction after filing for divorce in June. Mabri had sent the assailants to supervise the eviction, even though an appeals court had nullified an eviction order issued earlier by a lower court, news reports said. (ANA)
