Inside Gbago's former residence

Al Jazeera gains access inside the destroyed presidential palace where former Ivorian president was holed up.

    The French Air Force has handed control of the main airport in Abidjan to Ivorian authorities following the end of weeks of fighting.

    Officials are now assessing the damage to the presidential residence, where ousted leader Laurent Gbagbo was holed up.

    As Al Jazeera's Haru Mutasa reports, it's been a grim task.
