"In any country that records more than 200 dead in five days, as the UN has certified, it's war. When a country experiences a massive population flight of the population - more than 20,000 Ivoirians who leave their country to seek refuge in a country like Liberia - it's war."

- Guillaume Soro, prime minister of disputed president Alassane Ouattara, hoping ECOWAS isn't bluffing
