Since the disputed elections in November 2010, Côte d’Ivoire’s slide into civil war has been marked by increasing use of explosive weapons in populated areas. The use of artillery, mortars, rockets, and rocket-propelled grenades (RPGs) has caused acute suffering for the civilian population, from severe explosive weapons injuries to widespread displacement.
