media captionThe BBC's Allan Little looks at how the once prosperous Ivory Coast declined into a civil war.

Ivory Coast strongman Laurent Gbagbo has been seized after a four-month stand-off with his rival, Alassane Ouattara, over last November's disputed election. The UN says Mr Ouattara won, but Mr Gbagbo refused to cede power and accused former colonial power France of trying to oust him.
