An elite unit of Ivorian soldiers, who mutinied yesterday in Adiake, still don't seem to be happy – despite negotiation attempts by the chief of staff's office.
According to the AFP news, the special forces have been shooting in the air again today.
"The shooting has started again. Today, it's market day, and they [the troops] told the women to return to their houses. Everyone is terrified, and holed up in their homes."

The Ivorian special forces, who report directly to the president's office, have accused their commanders of stealing part of their salaries.
The trouble comes a month after regular soldiers staged a mutiny over pay and conditions.
The government agreed to the demands of the mutinous soldiers, some of whom were former rebels who backed President Alassane Ouattara.
But the payout has angered other segments of the military, raising fears of a resurgence of the violence seen during Ivory Coast's 10-year civil war, which ended in 2011.
