Ivory Coast: 'The relief is widespread'

Ivorian leader Laurent Gbagbo has been detained in Abidjan and placed under UN police guard.

Forces loyal to his UN-recognised successor, Alassane Ouattara, and French tanks advanced on his residence where he had been ensconced in a bunker.

Mr Gbagbo had been refusing to cede power, insisting he won November's presidential election.

Andrew Harding reports.
