UNITED NATIONS - The hotel in Abidjan where presidential claimant Alassane Ouattara has been holed up since a disputed Nov. 28 election in Ivory Coast was targeted by mortar fire on Saturday, a UN official told Reuters.

"Mortars targeting Golf Hotel," the official said in a text message, on condition of anonymity. "Now."

The UN official said there were no fatalities at the hotel in Ivory Coast's main city and that the mortar fire appeared to be coming from the presidential palace area in Abidjan.
