Ivory Coast update Jan. 5

The situation concerning the presidency of the Ivory Coast remains unclear. The Kenyan Prime Minister, Odinga, said that Gbagbo, the self-proclaimed president of the Ivory Coast, has agreed to remove the military blockade surrounding the hotel housing the temporary headquarters of Alassane Ouattara, the president-elect.

Several news outlets, among them CNN, BBC, Bloomberg have expressed doubt that the blockage around the hotel has been lifted and that a certain amount of scepticism surrounds Gbagbo’s willingness to leave office.
