Watch reporter Seyi Rhodes from British Channel 4 investigating the events during the Battle for Abidjan. The 24 minutes documentary takes him to a Young Patriots meeting, to the Malian Embassy and to the French military camp in Abidjan in the darkest hours of the conflict. He also witnesses the kidnapping at the Novotel, during which four foreign nationals were abducted by Gbagbo’s forces.
He is really taking big risks here, and his team gets physically assaulted on many occasions. But they manage to capture the essence and intensity of the situation in Abidjan in the days before the FRCI took over Abidjan.
