Gbagbos charged

Former Ivorian president Laurent Gbagbo, whose election loss sparked a brief civil war, has been charged by prosecutors with "economic crimes, armed robbery, looting and embezzlement," as was his wife. Pascal Affi N'Guessan, former head of Gbagbo's FPI party, has also been charged with attacking state security following the election defeat.
