"Ivory Coast's Laurent Gbagbo was negotiating the terms of his departure from a bunker in the presidential palace Tuesday, following a fierce assault by forces loyal to his rival, backed by U.N. and French helicopter airstrikes. French Prime Minister Francois Fillon said two Ivory Coast generals were involved in negotiating the surrender of Gbagbo, who had clung to power since refusing to concede he lost last November's presidential election to Alassane Ouattara."
