Summary: 
In this letter, we investigate the outage performance for decode-and-forward relaying under Rayleigh fading in the presence of multiple unequal-powered Rayleigh co-channel interferers. A close-form expression for the outage probability is derived and simulation results verify the theoretical solution.
