Snapshots: The world in 24 hours Mar 1

A woman bathes her child at St. Ambrose church in Angree, Abidjan Mar 1, 2011, a temporary refuge for people fleeing from clashes between forces loyal to incumbent president Laurent Gbagbo and his rival Alassane Ouattara. Security in Ivory Coast is deteriorating, with gun battles between rival forces most of last week and wider hostilities resuming across a north-south ceasefire line that had been largely quiet since the 2002-3 civil war ended in stalemate. Insurgents believed to back Ouattara now control of most of the northern Abidjan suburb of Abobo after the clashes. [Photo/Agencies]
