BOUAKE, Ivory Coast (Reuters) - Heavy gunfire erupted in Ivory Coast's second-largest city, Bouake, on Friday as government ministers were in talks with leaders of last week's army mutiny, witnesses and a negotiator for the disgruntled soldiers said.

"(The ministers) aren't paying. They won't pay," the negotiator for the mutineers told Reuters from inside the house where the talks were taking place. Sustained gunfire was heard on the line.
