Ivory Coast: Africa trio hold crisis talks with leaders

West African heads of state have met Laurent Gbagbo in Ivory Coast to persuade him to cede power after the disputed presidential election.

Mr Gbagbo is refusing to make way for Alassane Ouattara, internationally recognised as the president-elect.

The delegation has said that if he does not relinquish power, he could be forced out by military intervention.
