Laurent Gbagbo capture footage emerges

Pictures have been released of the moment when Laurent Gbagbo's attempt to cling on to power came to an end.

French forces led an assault against him on Monday to force him from power. He had refused to accept defeat in a November election.

His rival in last year's election, Alassane Ouattara, who was internationally recognised as winning the poll, has now taken power.

David Eades reports.
