African leaders struggle to end deadly Ivory Coast stand-off

The UN...the Useless Nations.  Anti-[g]od heretics.  Anti-America.  Hang them all and boot them OUT of the United States.  Let them tally-ho with NATO in Brussells where the Jihadi scum bags live.

Jordanian UN peacekeekers stand guard on January 1, outside of the hotel in Abidjan which is serving as the headquarters for the internationally recognised winner of the Ivorian presidential election Alassane Ouattara. Pressure ratcheted up on defiant leader Laurent Gbagbo to quit, as regional mediators launched a fresh round of diplomacy in search of a peaceful solution to the crisis. Pressure ratcheted up Sunday on Ivory Coast's defiant leader Laurent Gbagbo to quit, as regional mediators launched a fresh round of diplomacy in search of a peaceful solution to the deadly crisis.

Kenyan Prime Minister Raila Odinga, named by the African Union to try to broker an end to the stand-off between Gbagbo and the man the world says beat him to the presidency, Alassane Ouattara, flew to Nigeria en route for Abidjan.

Odinga, who has previously called for armed intervention to remove Gbagbo, was to meet later Sunday with Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan, who also heads the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS).

Odinga said that he would keep an open on mind on finding a solution for Ivory Coast, and that he would join three regional presidents due to travel to Abidjan for a second time in a week on Monday.

"We don't want to pre-empt anything. We just want to talk to him (Gbagbo) and we will see what happens," Odinga told AFP after he arrived in Nigeria.

Benin's Boni Yayi, Sierra Leone's Ernest Koroma and Cape Verde's Pedro Pires have so far failed to convince Gbagbo to step down despite ECOWAS brandishing the threat of military intervention to oust the strongman if mediation fails.

Tensions have risen steadily in the deadly standoff since Gbagbo and Ouattara both claimed victory in a November 28 presidential run-off vote that it was hoped would end a decade of crisis in Ivory Coast.

Gbagbo and Ouattara have fired off a series of deadlines at each other since then, with Ouattara's latest call for Gbagbo to quit expiring unheeded at midnight on New Year's Eve.

In return, Gbagbo's notorious "Street General", Minister for Youth Charles Ble Goude, urged Ivorian youths to rise up after the New Year to seize control of Ouattara's besieged headquarters in the waterfront Golf Hotel resort.

Ouattara's once-plush hotel is protected by a small contingent of lightly armed former rebel fighters known as the New Forces and 800 United Nations troops equipped with armoured vehicles and re-supplied by helicopter.

It is surrounded by Gbagbo's well-armed regulars, the Ivory Coast Defence and Security Forces (FDS), but there are fears of a repeat of 2004 violence if Ble Goude makes good on his threat to send thousands of unarmed youths to storm the hotel.

Against the background of building diplomatic momentum, calls have grown for alleged massive human rights violations to be investigated, including reports of mass graves of Gbagbo's opponents.

The UN says that at least 179 people have been killed in post-election violence but that it has been unable to fully investigate the violence because of attacks on its personnel.

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon on Saturday reaffirmed the world body's "unwavering" support for Ouattara and said he was "alarmed by the reports of egregious human rights violations."

The UN mission has "been instructed to do everything possible to gain access to the affected areas both for prevention and to investigate and record the violations so that those responsible will be held accountable."

Rights group Amnesty International called for ECOWAS to place the protection of human rights at the heart of their efforts to resolve the crisis.

"People are living in fear of being shot, arrested or abducted by the security forces or militias close to Laurent Gbagbo," Amnesty's Erwin van der Borght said in a statement.

"ECOWAS must send a strong signal that everything possible should be done to respect and protect the human rights of the population."

Gbagbo on Saturday accused the 9,000-strong UN peacekeeping mission ONUCI of firing on civilians, a charge denied by the UN.

The embattled leader has accused the UN force and France's 900-strong Licorne mission of backing his rival Ouattara.
