UNITED NATIONS - Ivory Coast's Laurent Gbagbo has surrendered to the forces of presidential claimant Alassane Ouattara and is being held by them, the United Nations said on Monday.

"The United Nations mission in Cote d'Ivoire (Ivory Coast) has confirmed that former President Laurent Gbagbo has surrendered to the forces of Alassane Ouattara and is currently in their custody," UN spokesman Farhan Haq said.

Haq said the UN mission, known as UNOCI, was "providing protection and security in accordance with its mandate." He told Reuters UNOCI was mandated to protect political stakeholders in Ivory Coast, which included Gbagbo.
