Former war chief of Bouake, lieutenant-colonel Issiaka Ouattara (R), also known as Wattao, flanked by mutineer soldiers, arrives at the deputy prefect's residence in Bouake for talks with the deputy prefect and Defence Minister on January 7, 2017 one day after soldiers rose up and seized control of Ivory Coast's second city. 
Soldiers seized control of Bouake on January 6 in a protest over pay, firing rocket launchers in the streets and terrifying residents, as the government called for calm. The protests in Bouake spread to the central towns of Daloa and Daoukro as well as Korhogo in the north, as angry troops took to the streets demanding salary hikes.
