At least two people were killed Saturday in ethnic clashes in Ivory Coast following President Alassane Ouattara's controversial announcement he would run for a third term, a hospital source and local residents said Sunday.

"One person evacuated to the regional hospital succumbed to their injuries and died this morning," said a hospital source in Divo, a cocoa growing hub in the south of the country where pro-opposition youths clashed with supporters of the ruling party.

Several local people also said they had seen the body of a teenager killed in a fire in a local bar.
