Transcript by Newsy**** BY CHRISTINA NICKS You're watching multisource world news analysis from Newsy A struggle for power in Ivory Coast may affect your sweet tooth. President-elect Alassane Ouattara has called for a month-long ban on cocoa exports from the West African nation. Ouattara is the UN- sanctioned winner of the country’s November presidential election- but incumbent President Laurent Gbagbo is refusing to give up power. (Video from: euronews) The goal of the ban is to reduce cash coming in, making it more difficult for Gbagbo to pay his supporters. But will it work? CNN reports...maybe. “Some exporters may be reluctant to ignore Ouattara’s call in case he does eventually become president one day, but if in a couple of days they get an indication that the cocoa is getting out of the Ivory Coast the price may stabilize at least for now.” A blogger for The Guardian says- sure, a cocoa ban may be an effective way to smoke out Gbagbo- but it may not be necessary. He reports- a number of legal maneuvers are already shifting power. “The West African Central Bank has withdrawn authorization for Gbagbo to release funds, stifling the flow of money to his regime ... and with visa bans on Gbagbo and 84 of his supporters, and the freezing of their assets in Europe.” A contributor to The Independent agrees- a cocoa ban isn’t the best tactic. But he suggests a more extreme solution to the nation’s messy game of power ping-pong. “The best solution for that country is to allow Ouattara and Gbagbo to contest in the real court of effective state formation – the military. The winner will have to be the one who is able to organise people and mobilize resources to secure victory.” That article goes on to suggest the international community should stay out of Ivory Coast problems. But since the nation is the world’s largest producer of cocoa beans- media financial experts say- everyone will feel the ripple effect of unrest. “Chocolate prices, by the way, they are heading north. Analysts say we could see a 15% spike in our chocolate because cocoa beans are up 12% so far this year.” Cocoa prices jumped close to their highest in 30 years after Ouattara announced the ban. Six major exporters in the region say they will go along with the month-long cocoa hiatus. Get more multisource video news analysis from Newsy

BY BRANDON TWICHELL ANCHOR: AUSTIN KIM You're watching multisource world news analysis from Newsy While the world’s attention is focused on North Africa -- Egypt and Libya -- the power struggle in Ivory Coast is escalating. President Laurent Gbagbo is refusing to hand over power to the internationally-recognized winner in last November’s election. Close to 400 people have already been killed -- and the fear of an all-out civil war is growing. A reporter for Al Jazeera reports on the clashes in the capital. “Gbagbo’s forces have also launched a major offensive to get rid of pro-Ouattara militias at the Abobo district in the north of Abidjan. Abobo is mainly controlled by militiamen loyal to Alassane Ouattara, and they are only allowing UN peacekeepers access.” A BBC correspondent tells NPR the military and the rebel forces had been staying out of the deadly political conflict until now. “[F]or six years plus there was a cease-fire across the line, or the frontline, and there had not been fighting. So the fact that the opposing military forces are now clashing is what is really causing a lot of fear.” The African Union responded to the ongoing conflict by freezing the Ivory Coast’s accounts and trying to negotiate a peace deal - which fell through. A writer for allAfrica says AU leaders fear the uprisings in the northern part of the continent will spread to their countries. “[M]any of the heads of state are themselves shaking in their boots at the thought of their own masses taking to the streets...They talk of shock at the situation and urge restraint from all parties - the usual meaningless niceties.” Finally, a writer for Daily Nation says international organizations like the AU are failing to end conflicts in Ivory Coast and Libya. “Combined, Gaddafi and Gbagbo have exposed again the AU and the [Arab] League as, at best, useless...It’s obvious the AU and the League are incapable of persuading, let alone discipline, their les enfants terrible, even when consensuses of wrongdoing exist.” 'Like' Newsy on Facebook for updates in your news feed Watch more multisource video news analysis from Newsy Transcript by Newsy

BY HARUMENDHAH HELMY ANCHOR CHANCE SEALES You're watching multisource world news analysis from Newsy Troops loyal to Ivory Coast’s internationally recognized President Alessane Ouattara have seized the country’s capital, Yamoussoukro, and a strategic cocoa port of San Pedro. The forces have now reportedly begun their assault on the major city of Abidjan — where incumbent President Laurent Gbagbo has been isolated. Gbagbo is also facing stricter international sanctions. (Video: euronews) “Now the U.N. Security Council, which has been criticized for doing little in Ivory Coast, while authorizing air strikes to protect Libya’s people, has acted. It has imposed a travel ban and frozen the overseas financial assets of Laurent Gbagbo and his inner circle.” (Video: BBC) France 24 predicts — even though some pro-Ouattara men are already controlling parts of Abidjan, the fight for the city could still be the fiercest battle so far. “Since mid-February, pro-Ouattara forces have been in control of Abobo and Anyama, two large neighborhoods of Abidjan — mostly thanks to so-called Invisible Commando, largely made up of former rebels. ... The battle for Abidjan could turn into a bloodbath. Laurent Gbagbo has thousands of fearless young patriots ready to fight for him, and an army that has vowed to arm and train them.” Gbagbo lost last November’s U.N.-certified election to Ouattara, but still refuses to step down. The violence that erupted since then has left at least 470 people dead, and thousands of others displaced. (Video: euronews) Al Jazeera talks to one freelance journalist in Abidjan who says violence is a last resort for Ouattara, and that it’s unclear how much control the leader has over the advancing rebel forces. “‘Ouattara accepted their support, but was hesitant to have any fighting going on, saying as the legitimately elected leader he didn't want to have to take the country by force. The offensive over the last few days has shown that he feels he has no other options now.’” But, the fight for power could soon be over — as the struggle reaches what The New York Times calls a “decisive stage” and as Gbagbo loses the backing of one of his top officials. “The army chief of staff … sought refuge for himself, his wife and five children in the home of the South African ambassador in Abidjan on Thursday … His flight appeared to deal a significant blow to Mr. Gbagbo, whose forces have crumbled from east to west in the West African nation.” Follow Newsy_Videos on Twitter Get more multisource video news analysis from Newsy Transcript by Newsy

BY JONATHAN KETZ ANCHOR JENNIFER MECKLES You're watching multisource world news analysis from Newsy Incumbent Ivory Coast President Laurent Gbagbo was struggling to keep his grip on power as troops backing the elected president continued their siege of the commercial capital. While Gbagbo is trying to mobilize his forces in Abidjan-- CNN says many troops have switched to President Alassane Ouattara’s side. Ralitsa Vassileva: “They now control 80 percent of the country. It happened because a lot of the military and police support for president Gbagbo, the incumbent who refuses to step down---just switched sides.” Ouattara won the presidency in an election held five months ago. More than 1,000 people have been killed in post-election violence, and Gbagbo still refuses to step down---claiming officials rigged the vote. France 24 says it’s very clear Ouattara’s forces will prevail---but Gbagbo’s inner circle is suggesting he choose one of two options. “One saying Laurent, it’s over. Game over. You should try to find the honorable exit. And others...primarily around Simone, his wife, are really saying you must resist.” Gbagbo has called on the African Union and UN to enforce a ceasefire. Africa Review says Gbagbo didn’t seek the union’s help until the rebels surged south and started “pounding” his troops. “The man the media like to call a strongman is coming across as every inch a wimp. Who would have imagined he would be crying for the African Union and the UN to call for a ceasefire...?” The United Nations says both of the rival presidents have been linked to human rights abuses. The UN now claims Outtara’s forces killed 330 people in the western town of Duekoue. The International Red Cross said 800 people died during the violence last week. (Video from CNN) The Obama administration wants Gbagbo to concede. But Salon writes that some from the Christian right, including influential U.S. Senator Jim Inhofe, support Gbagbo’s rule.l “[The support] may have to do with both long-standing relationships between Gbagbo and evangelicals active in Africa, and the fact that Gbagbo is Christian and his Muslim.” As fighting in Abidjan continues, the UN has evacuated its staff there. France sent in more troops and took the city’s airport to facilitate evacuations, causing Gbagbo to intensify his claim that Ivory Coast is the victim of a foreign invasion.

BY JENNIFER MECKLES You're watching multisource world video news analysis from Newsy. The battle for power in Ivory Coast may finally be coming to an end Tuesday as reports say UN officials are negotiating with president Laurent Gbagbo for his surrender. It began Monday with French and UN forces launching what’s being called the “Final Assault.” “Fighting raged today in Ivory Coast where forces loyal to the elected leader seized the presidential palace with air support from French and UN Helicopters. Laurent Gbagbo refused to step down after losing the November vote.” (Video: NBC) Live blog updates from France 24 reported Gbagbo’s forces declared a ceasefire after being overpowered. “But in the end, Gbagbo’s forces were overwhelmed, as their leader apparently took refuge in a basement bunker under the Presidential Palace - a palace that seems to symbolize the power he now finally seems to be surrendering.” (Video: BBC) Reuters first reported a surrender from Gbagbo Tuesday, citing proof from internal UN documents. But the Ivory Coast leader and his camp quickly responded, saying -- he hadn’t stepped down yet. And as negotiations continue -- NPR reports -- a city waits on edge: “So, negotiations are happening. If it means that the heavy weapons fire and the helicopter - the fighter helicopters that have been attacking strategic positions will end, the civilians in Abejian will be relieved... at least for now.” While the country and the world wait, focus turns to the impact of the violence. CNN says both sides blame each other for at least 800 killed, and one million displaced: “Gbagbo's forces blame Ouattara’s forces, Ouattara’s forces blame Gbagbo. Whats interesting is those forces loyal to Alassane Ouattara are called, the ‘new forces.’ And Ouattara is maintaining his distance from them, saying -- I don’t have any control over these rebel groups.” And on Al Jazeera, a former editor for West Africa Magazine explains -- even if Ouattara succeeds, his presidency will be tainted. “The fact that he and his troops have been accused of having killed many civilians, raising a problem and even if he becomes president -- with intervention forces... he would have to live with this really big sin - that he has been put to power by foreign intervention.” Get more multisource world video news analysis from Newsy.
