BBC News – US offers Ivory Coast’s Laurent Gbagbo ‘dignified exit’.

Will West African leaders convince Laurent Gbagbo (left) to cede power?
Incumbent Ivory Coast President Laurent Gbagbo could be offered refuge in the US as a means to end the country’s political crisis, US officials say.
Washington could help Mr Gbagbo make a “dignified exit”, but this opportunity was “rapidly closing”, they said.
The comments came as a delegation of African leaders met Mr Gbagbo in a new effort to persuade him to step down following disputed elections.
