Gbagbo loath to share power

In an interview with Al Jazeera, incumbent president of Cote d'Ivoire welcomes UN investigators.

    Cote d'Ivoire's presidential claimant, Alassane Ouattara, has called for a general strike from Monday until incumbent Laurent Gbagbo steps down.

    In an interview with Al Jazeera's Ama Boateng, Gbagbo said UN inspectors are welcome to investigate allegations of mass graves.

    Gbagbo also said he might even reluctantly consider sharing power in the interests of peace.
