Dramatic video of Gbagbo arrest as troops storm Ivory Coast residence
Video has emerged showing the moment pro-Ouattara forces captured Ivory Coast's strongman Laurent Gbagbo and his wife at the presidential residence in Abidjan. The footage shows fighters loyal to internationally recognised president Alassane Ouattara storming the presidential palace and seizing Gbagbo and his wife. Gbagbo was arrested on Monday and taken to Ouattara's Abidjan headquarters at the Golf Hotel. The UN said on Tuesday that he had been moved but would not say where to.
