    The incumbent president of Ivory Coast is hardening his resistance to international pressure to stand down, even refusing to take a phone call from Barack Obama.

    Laurent Gbagbo, who is widely viewed as having lost a recent election, is refusing to leave office despite attempts to persuade him from West African leaders and others in the broader international community.

    Lanny J Davis, a lawyer who used to work for Bill Clinton, has resigned from his job advising Mr Gbagbo, claiming that the president had stopped taking his calls, and refused one from the US president.

    Mr Davis said he had repeatedly tried to set up a phone conversation between Mr Gbagbo and Mr Obama which would have given the Ivorian "options for a peaceful resolution, that would avoid further bloodshed and be in the best interests of his country".

    "Unfortunately, the decision was made in Abidjan not to allow President Obama's call to be put through to Mr Gbagbo, despite my repeated objections to that decision," he wrote in his resignation letter, which was seen by CNN.

    Mr Davis said he would continue to push for a peaceful resolution in the former French colony "but for the reasons expressed above I will no longer be able to do so as a representative of your government".

    The way I see it:
    Gbagbo's back is against the wall!

    Gbagbo wants to die as Ivory Coast President, otherwise, do not expect he would leave the presidency

    It's amazing how Ivory Coast has plunged into this state. I remember the days of Félix Houphouët-Boigny this country was exemplary despite others saying Boigny was a dictator. Inaonekana Africa ni bara pekee ambapo nchi zake zinarudi nyuma kimaendeleo badala ya kusonga mbele. Kazi tunayo!!!

    La kuvunda halina ubani - nadhani huu ni wakati muafaka kwa viongozi wa aina ya Gbagbo kupata a very strong message kwamba such undemocratic tendencies can longer be tolerated.
