DEVELOPING: Gunmen stormed a popular Ivory Coast beach resort frequented by Westerners on Sunday, according to AFP.

At least two people were dead and a large military deployment was on the scene, The Wall Street Journal reported, citing state media.
The gunfire reportedly occurred at a hotel in Grand-Bassam and several people were wounded, diplomatic sources told Reuters. Four gunmen were involved in the attack, a witness told Reuters.

The attackers, who were “heavily armed and wearing balaclavas, fired at guests at the L’Etoile du Sud, a large hotel which was full of expats in the current heatwave,” a witness told AFP.

“I saw seven dead that I filmed. There were four attackers. I was swimming when it started and I ran away,” said Dramane Kima, who showed video of the carnage to Reuters. He also took pictures of grenades and ammunition clips he believed were left behind by the gunmen.
