Ivory Coast calm as rivals hold positions

Fighters loyal to Ivory Coast presidential rivals Laurent Gbagbo and Alassane Ouattara held onto positions around the main city Abidjan on Sunday, a day that saw less fighting than the previous three.
Following the three days of pitched battles, Reuters correspondents and witnesses said the main city in the world’s top cocoa-growing nation was calm, with sporadic gunfire and explosions heard in some neighbourhoods.
