ABIDJAN - Ivory Coast's state television, which has remained loyal to incumbent Laurent Gbagbo, went off air on Thursday evening after hours of fighting near its headquarters in the main city of Abidjan.
Residents across the city said the broadcaster stopped transmitting at 2245 GMT after repeatedly showing images of Gbagbo and his close entourage.
It was not immediately clear what caused the cut in transmission but forces loyal to Alassane Ouattara were fighting Gbagbo loyalists near the station's headquarters in the Abidjan neighborhood of Cocody.
