NAIROBI - UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Friday said he wants Ivory Coast's presidential claimant Laurent Gbagbo to cede power to his rival Alassane Ouattara.

"I renew my call for Mr Gbagbo to step down and hand over power to ... Allasane Ouattara. I want to remind all those who commit serious violations of human rights ... will be held accountable," Ban told a news conference in the Kenyan capital.
