The body of Kloueu Gonzreu, correspondent for the state-owned Agence ivoirienne de presse (AIP), was found on 19 March in the western region of Toulépleu. He had been missing since 11 January and several sources said he had been arrested by Liberians fighting alongside pro-government forces.
Gonzreu, 51, had worked for AIP since July 2000. He also taught history and geography and worked for the local branch of the Red Cross. The body of his 19-year-old son Thierry and those of two other Red Cross volunteers were also found.
