Ivory Coast Leader's Ouster Imminent

Thursday, 31 Mar 2011 12:29 PM

 

YAMOUSSOUKRO, March 31 (Reuters) - Ivory Coast's Laurent Gbagbo has just 2-3 hours left in power, the head of Alassane Ouattara's parallel government told Reuters on Thursday.

"Two or three hours and I think it will be finished … the game is over for Gbagbo. It is finished," Guillaume Soro told Reuters in the country's official capital, which fell to pro-Ouattara forces on Wednesday.

Ouattara's forces have marched swiftly on Abidjan this week and heavy weapons fire rang out in the centre of town on Thursday afternoon.
