UN investigators said Friday they had found evidence of possible crimes against humanity by forces loyal to Ivory Coast's ex-president Laurent Gbagbo and followers of his successor Alassane Ouattara.

"The commission concluded that during the period examined, several serious violations of human rights and international humanitarian law were committed by different actors; some could constitute crimes against humanity and war crimes," said the findings of a probe ordered by the UN Humans Rights Council.

"These violations were committed by the Defence and Security Forces and their allies, and during their counter-offensive and by their control of the country, by the Republican Forces of Ivory Coast," the investigators added.
