ABIDJAN - Former Ivory Coast leader Laurent Gbagbo is on a flight en route to the International Criminal Court in the Hague, his defense lawyer said on Tuesday.

"Yes, Gbagbo is on the plane, heading to the ICC," said lawyer Lucie Bourthoumieux.

The ICC is investigating killings, rapes and other abuses committed during a four-month conflict triggered by Gbagbo's refusal to cede power to Alassane Ouattara after last year's election.
