Ivory Coast shooting witness tells how Al Qaeda terrorists singled out one child because he said a Muslim prayer

 Ivory Coast shooting witness tells how Al Qaeda terrorists singled out victims
At least four men armed with AK47s and hand grenades stormed an idyllic beach at the popular resort of Grand Bassam, Ivory Coast, and gunned down 16 people in cold blood. Among the people they killed was a young child (bottom right, another child injured in the attack) who fell to his knees and begged for his life. One survivor, who saw the entire bloody attack unfold, said a bearded gunman spoke in Arabic to two children and spared the one who understood him.

Soldiers and Ivorian Red Cross workers were tasked with dragging dead bodies (left and top right) from the blood stained sand outside L'Etoile du Sud hotel, where at least one person was killed. See photos of victims killed at the beach below; WARNING GRAPHIC PHOTOS....

Ivory Coast's President Alassane Ouattara said the 'toll could have been much heavier' (pictured, the Ivorian Red Cross carry a dead body from the beach)
