ABIDJAN - Forces loyal to Alassane Ouattara have taken control of Ivory Coast's state television, a spokesman for Ouattara's government said on Thursday.

Patrick Achi, the spokesman, also said that Laurent Gbagbo, Ouattara's rival who has refused to cede power, has shown no signs of giving up despite a swift rebel advance on Abidjan and heavy fighting between forces loyal to each.

RTI, the state broadcaster, went off air earlier in the evening after hours of heavy fighting near the station's headquarters in the Abidjan neighborhood of Cocody.
