ABIDJAN - Ivory Coast incumbent leader Laurent Gbagbo has "a few hours" to relinquish power peacefully and there is no room for any further negotiations, rival Alassane Ouattara's prime minister said on Wednesday.

"The time for dialogue and ceasefires is over...(Gbagbo) has a few hours to leave power peacefully," Guillaume Soro, who heads Ouattara's government, told French radio RFI.

Soro was speaking as forces loyal to Ouattara took the official capital, Yamoussoukro, neared the major port of San Pedro and headed towards the main city of Abidjan on Wednesday.
