Google Translate: Source Côte d'Ivoire | Côte d'Ivoire : combats de rue à Abidjan pour l'arrivée du panel de l'UA It is in a very tense atmosphere that four panelists AU - Blaise Compaore of Burkina Faso without - arrived in Abidjan, where violent clashes took place between supporters of Alassane Ouattara and forces loyal to Laurent Gbagbo. The Heads of State started their visit by meeting with the president. The defection of Burkinabe President Blaise Compaore for "security reasons" did not prevent the arrival of his counterparts in Abidjan panel of African Union (AU), Monday, February 21 at noon. But the presidents Mohamed Ould Abdelaziz (Mauritania), Jacob Zuma (South Africa), Idriss Deby (Chad) and Jikaya Kikwete (Tanzania) arose in the Ivorian economic capital in the context of street fighting with heavy weapons between security forces loyal to Laurent Gbagbo and supporters of his rival Alassane Ouattara. Monday, several districts of Abidjan has been the scene of violent clashes, leaving at least one dead in Treichville (south). The heaviest fighting took place in the town of Kumasi, south of Abidjan, where rocket fire were heard. A building was burned in the same neighborhood. The stay of four African president may therefore not be easy. Ouattara met the conditions The day before the arrival of the panel members had already been seriously compromised by new demands for Gbagbo and Ouattara. If at the last minute, Blaise Compaore had to give up coming because of hostile demonstrations against him organized by the "patriots" of the outgoing president, the condition imposed by the camp Ouattara has been satisfied. He refused the chiefs of state are received by members of the Gbagbo government. Thus, the four panel members were received by Ambrose Nyonsaba, the AU representative in Côte d'Ivoire. What remains to be seen on "restrictive measures" the panel members will be able to agree. Sunday in Nouakchott, they had met for six hours to find a draft solution to the Ivorian crisis, post election. At the outset, the South Africans have suggested setting aside of Laurent Gbagbo and his rival Alassane Ouattara in favor of Prime Minister of the latter, Guillaume Soro, to ensure a transition leading to new elections. A proposal was immediately rejected by the other panelists on the grounds that Soro, former rebel not yet repented, would be a bad example for the promotion of democracy. Dangerous Mission Tanzania's Kikwete has meanwhile recommended the initiation of proceedings with international judicial bodies against members of the Constitutional Council, which are considered the cause of the political stalemate in Côte d'Ivoire. Proposal was also rejected. The panel's mission in Abidjan is dangerous insofar as the various mediations conducted so far have failed. For the latest news, African diplomatic sources said, the panel members would be able to agree on a consensus position. The AU mandate gives them until 28 February to present "solutions binding" on the various options for ending the crisis.
