Group urges Ivory Coast to make decisive efforts at reconciliation

Archbishop Desmond Tutu's peace and human rights group has urged Ivory Coast to make more decisive efforts at reconciliation more than a year after a political crisis left thousands dead.

The Elders, chaired by the veteran anti-apartheid activist and made up of world figures including former United States President, Jimmy Carter, voiced concerns that some of those responsible for the west African nation's violence had not been prosecuted.

In a press statement, the group says that, "The Elders are heartened to find the country is on the road to recovery, but stress the need for more decisive progress towards reconciliation."
