World: Here’s a picture of someone tearing up Ivory Coast’s election results

  • To our friends who are members of the Independent Electoral Commission of the Ivory Coast: If you’re going to tear up a paper with the official results on it immediately before the planned announcement, be sure a reporter from the Christian Science Monitor (below, right) isn’t watching you do it, and a photographer from the Associated Press (behind the camera) isn’t taking a photo of you doing it. Because it might look like you’re trying to rig an election for a certain candidate. As bad as this incident was on Tuesday, it’s only gotten worse from here. source
