PARIS - Negotiations led by the United Nations and France aimed at securing the departure of Ivory Coast's Laurent Gbagbo have failed, French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe said on Wednesday.

"The negotiations which were carried out for hours yesterday between the entourage of Laurent Gbagbo and Ivorian authorities have failed because of Gbagbo's intransigence," Juppe told parliament.
