"The U.N. Security Council on Wednesday demanded an immediate end to the escalating violence in Ivory Coast and imposed sanctions on Laurent Gbagbo, who has refused to relinquish the presidency, and his inner circle. Wednesday's council vote was unanimous and came five days after France and Nigeria introduced a draft resolution expressing 'grave concern' that the west African nation could relapse into civil war."
