Ex-Ivorian leader could face war crimes charges


An International Criminal Court prosecutor has said it is possible that ex-Ivorian leader Laurent Gbagbo, who has been acquitted by trial judges, could be retried on war crimes charges.

The former leader faced four counts of crimes against humanity, including murder, rape, persecution and other inhumane acts during post-electoral violence in Ivory Coast between December 2010 and April 2011, when Gbagbo refused to accept defeat by rival Alassane Ouattara.
