Ivory Coast's President Ouattara to be inaugurated

More than 20 heads of state are preparing to attend the inauguration of Ivory Coast's President Alassane Ouattara.

He took the oath of office two weeks ago.

The ceremony aims to draw a line under six months of bloody unrest.

Fighting broke out after Mr Ouattara's predecessor Laurent Gbagbo refused to admit defeat following last year's presidential election.
