A spokesman for Ivory Coast strongman Laurent Gbagbo denied on Friday that his forces had attacked the French ambassador's residence in Abidjan as the embassy had reported.

The spokesman, Ahoua Don Mello, said he "formally denied" a statement by the French embassy that the ambassador's house had been targeted by two mortars and a rocket from positions held by Gbagbo's forces.
