The victims reportedly came from six different countries. Eleven Ivorians were killed, and four French citizens were among the dead, as well as one German, one Nigerian, one Macedonian and one Lebanese.
The violence spared no group, Bruno Koné, a spokesman for the government of the Ivory Coast, said Wednesday. Among the victims were Ivorians from the north and the south, Africans and westerners, and Muslims and Christians.
Koné announced the government will provide nearly $1 million in financial assistance to the town of Grand Bassam, as well as local hotels and traders.
