Gbagbo in Abidjan captured in the bunker arrested by the forces of rival Ouattara

 The outgoing president of Cote d'Ivoire Laurent Gbagbo was arrested by the forces of the Chief of Alassane Ouattara and conducted with his wife Simone and his son, the Golf Hotel, headquarters of the president recognized by the international community. He stated the French ambassador in Abidjan, Jean-Marc Simon, denying that the arrest was executed by French special forces, as reported previously.

In the evening, the former president appeared on the TCI, TV Ouattara's supporters, and appealed to her to stop arms. Also in TV Alassane Ouattara, President recognized by the international community of the Ivory Coast, has announced the launch of "legal proceedings against Gbagbo, his wife and his staff.

He added that "they were taken all measures" necessary to ensure the "physical integrity". Remain unclear, however, the circumstances that led to the arrest of the former leader. Witnesses said several tanks entered today in the residence of Abijdan to Gbagbo, the country's economic capital, where he had barricaded for days.
