BOUAKE - Catched soldiers in Côte d'Ivoire have closed access to Bouake, the second city of the country. Two people trying to get on a motorbike along a roadblock were shot down.

The soldiers have a conflict with the government about their salaries. A promised bonus is still not fully paid. That bonus was promised because the soldiers ended a previous uprising in January. The 8400 military soldiers have already received 5 million francs (7000 euros), but require another 7 million francs (10,600 euros) per person.

In other places in Côte d'Ivoire it is uneasy.
