This report from Amnesty International, with the title "Côte D´Ivoire : A Succession of Unpunished Crimes: From the massacre of gendarmes at Bouaké to the mass graves of Daloa, Monoko-Zohi and Man", which was published 27 February 2003 examines "the impunity that has generated a continuous cycle of massacres in Côte d´Ivoire." The report is summarized as follows: "The summary execution of gendarmes at Bouaké by MPCI personnel in October 2002, has inevitably evoked memories of the massacre at Yopougon, where about 50 bodies were dumped after having been killed by gendarmes on 26 October 2000. In these two cases, the perpetrators of the crimes seem to have acted in the knowledge that they would not be held to account for their actions. The need to fight this impunity has become even clearer with the outbreak of the Côte d´Ivoire crisis in September 2002 and the series of massacres and assassinations committed since then by all parties to the conflict." The report includes lists of those killed in the massacres in the Bouaké prison and the village of Daloa.

The report is also available in French
