Senior Amnesty activist Veronique Aubert said: “The United Nations Operation in Cote d’Ivoire (UNOCI) mandate in Cote d’Ivoire requires the peacekeepers to protect civilians at imminent threat of physical violence.
“They must act immediately to prevent further bloodshed.”
The UNOCI camp is only about two miles away from Duekoue.
The situation in the west of Ivory Coast has been volatile since the November 2010 contested presidential elections.
All parties to the conflict have committed serious human rights violations.
