    Ivory Coast's Gbagbo snubs African Union mediation

    Mauritanian residents, who fled fighting in some districts of Abidjan, wait next to their luggage inside the compound of the Mauritanian embassy in Abidjan, where they took refuge, to be evacuated to their country on March 7, 2011. Three people were killed overnight in a "rebel" attack in an Abidjan district controlled by forces loyal to Ivory Coast's internationally recognized president, the government of incumbent president Laurent Gbagbo said Monday.

    ABIDJAN - Ivory Coast strongman Laurent Gbagbo will skip African Union-hosted talks with his rival for the presidency, his party said Tuesday in a new snub to efforts to end an increasingly bloody dispute.

    Gbagbo would not attend Thursday's talks with Alassane Ouattara in Addis Ababa as he wants to stay in the Ivory Coast "because of the deterioration of the domestic security situation", his Ivorian Popular Front party said.

    Gbagbo has refused to hand power to Ouattara, who is internationally recognized as the winner of the presidential elections in November, despite mediation, sanctions and the threat of intervention.

    Instead, party leader Pascal Affi N'Guessan and Gbagbo foreign minister Alcide Djedje had left for the Ethiopian capital to attend the meeting at the African Union headquarters, party spokesman Eric Ane told AFP.

    The African Union invited the rivals to talks in its latest bid to end a dispute that has deteriorated into the worst conflict since clashes in 2004, with 370 people killed since mid-December, according to UN figures.

    the man has got problems-if he denied to present himself before African leaders-surely he is the one to be blamed-and for that reason he should be ousted from his post by any means

    Ivory Coast marches on International Women's Day end in bloodshed

    Marches by thousands of women in protest at Ivory Coast's president Laurent Gbagbo have ended in bloodshed after his army killed four people.

    The women made their stand on International Women's Day, less than a week after Gbagbo's soldiers killed seven women at a peaceful demonstration, earning worldwide condemnation.

    After a small women's march in the Treichville neighbourhood, one of several in Abidjan on Tuesday, security forces burst into the area and began shooting.

    The bodies of three men and one woman were seen by an Associated Press photographer inside a clinic where they were taken for treatment. The overwhelmed clinic had nowhere to put them except on the floor where the blood of the dead pooled together.

    Not just Ivory Coast, the whole continent needs a new starategy/new road map. Every ruler who does NOT want to give up power, or works hard NOT to at least put in place the foundation for democratic process to take roots, seems to think that his country's "Situation" is different, so the continuation of his rule is "Vital". These rulers' excessive immotional "Love and concern" for their "Mother land", should be seen as alarmingly unhealthy and must be treated as a medical case before it destroys their country and its people as it did to many countries. Yes, without a doubt, every society/community/individual is different in many aspects, but the issue of freedom always has had a universal appeal to all human beings on planet Earth, regardless of their gender, race, religion, place of origin, color and age. The strategy for every country MUST be respecting the " The God given inalienable rights" of every human being, and the rest will fall in place naturally. Thanks
