Ivory Coast: Ouattara wants EU sanctions lifted

Ivory Coast's internationally recognised President Alassane Ouattara has urged the EU to lift sanctions, in a bid to restart the ailing economy. Mr Ouattara now controls the main cocoa-exporting port of San Pedro, and wants to restart the trade. But his troops are still not in control of all of the main city Abidjan, where his rival Laurent Gbagbo remains holed up in the presidential residence. Aid agencies are warning of a deepening humanitarian crisis in Abidjan. Residents of the city are without basic amenities such as running water and power, and food supplies are running low. Witnesses say bodies are lying on the streets after days of bitter fighting between loyalists of the two presidential claimants.
