Gbagbo threatened by military in Ivory Coast

African leaders delivered an ultimatum to Laurent Gbagbo today, warning him to step down as Ivory Coast’s president immediately or face possible military action.

The presidents of Sierra Leone, Benin and Cape Verde held three hours of talks with Gbagbo at the presidential palace in Abidjan after first meeting with the top UN envoy to the country.

As the meeting ended, Benin’s president, Boni Yayi, said simply: "All went well." The three leaders declined to comment further.
