ABIDJAN - Forces loyal to Alassane Ouattara attacked the residence of incumbent Laurent Gbagbo in the early hours of Friday morning, a spokesman for Ouattara's government said.




"His house is under attack. That's for sure. There is a resistance, but it's under attack," spokesman Patrick Achi told Reuters.




Reports of the attack on Gbagbo's residence follow hours fighting between the two factions and statements by Ouattara's camp that they seized the nearby headquarters of state broadcaster RTI, which went off air late on Thursday evening.




There was no immediate reaction from Gbabgo's camp.
