UNITED NATIONS - United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said on Sunday he ordered UN peacekeepers in Ivory Coast to use "all necessary means" to halt the use of heavy weapons being used by the forces of incumbent President Laurent Gbagbo.

"The continued use of heavy weapons against the civilian population and our peacekeepers, as well as the attack against the Headquarters of the legitimate Government, have compelled me, once again, to instruct UNOCI to use all necessary means to prevent the use of these weapons, pursuant to Security Council resolutions 1975 (2011) and 1962 (2010)," Ban said in a statement.
