Hundreds of people have died since Cote d'Ivoire's disputed presidential elections last November. The United Nations estimates that close to 500,000 people have also fled their homes for fear of violence.
 
The UN, African Union and many countries around the world have recognised Ouattara as the winner of the vote, but Gbagbo has refused to step down. His supporters say the election was rigged.
 
That is raising fears of another civil war in the country that, many believe, could have a profound impact on the future of democracy in Africa.
