"The prime minister of Cote d'Ivoire presidential claimant Alassane Ouattara urged the international community to consider using force to oust incumbent Laurent Gbagbo saying it was the 'only solution.' Gbagbo has refused to quit following a November 28 election that African countries and western powers say he lost to Ouattara, in a dispute that the United Nations says has already killed 50 people and threatens to restart a civil war. Speaking on French television network I-Tele, Guillaume Soro said Gbagbo had raised the military stakes leaving few options." (12/23/10)
