Video of French Soldiers Firing on Civilians

Warning: Very Graphic Video of French soldiers firing on civilians in the Ivory Coast. And I do mean graphic! One shot appears to be someone with their head literally blown off. (What happens when you shoot someone in the head with a 7.62x51 mm NATO round at close range?) It's a 10 minute video clip, so the download takes a while.
ABIDJAN, Nov 18 (Reuters) - Ivory Coast's government said on Thursday that soldiers from former colonial power France had shot dead 63 people and injured more than 1,300 during several days of unrest in the world's top cocoa grower.
A spokesman for the French military declined to comment.

These aren't insurgents, as you can see if you have the stomach for the video.
