Ivory Coast army closes borders

The military in Ivory Coast has announced the closure of the country's land, sea and air borders, amid confusion over the result of Sunday's presidential election run-off.

It comes after the Constitutional Court rejected a declaration by the electoral commission that opposition candidate Alassane Ouattara had won.

John James reports from the Ivorian commercial capital, Abidjan.
