Ivory Coast election: Army says it has sealed borders
The Ivorian military has sealed the country's borders and cut international media as tensions rise over the outcome of the presidential election run-off.
It comes after the Constitutional Council rejected a declaration by the electoral commission that opposition candidate Alassane Ouattara had won.
Supporters of President Laurent Gbagbo had tried to block the long-delayed result, alleging fraud in the north.
