Ivory Coast initiates post-election violence reconciliation commission
Katherine Bacher at 12:00 AM ET

On September 28, 2011, the Ivory Coast government launched a Truth and Reconciliation Commission to resolve conflicts from the post-election violence that took place at the beginning of 2011. More than 3,000 people were killed following the election of President Alassane Ouattara. Rights groups called for the government to hear cases regarding those killed by Ouattara forces as well. In April 2011, Human Rights Watch (HRW) urged Ouattara to investigate atrocities carried out by his forces as they were attempting to secure the presidency.
