Ivory Coast crisis talks inconclusive

Three representatives of the Economic Community of West African States and an African Union representative met twice Monday with self-declared Ivory Coast Pre­si­dent Laurent Gbagbo in an attempt to persuade him to step down, but there was no indication late in the day that they were near their goal. “We had a very fruitful meeting between all parties and in a good spirit,” Sierra Leone President Ernest Bai Koroma told reporters after meeting with Gbagbo for a second time Monday in his residence here. “But the discussions are still underway.” He said a full statement would be issued Tuesday.
