France says Ivory Coast's Gbagbo must stand down, Posted by Meosha Eaton

PARIS, April 1 (Reuters) - France said on Friday Ivory Coast presidential claimant Laurent Gbagbo must stand down at once, end violence and hand over power to rival Alassane Ouattara.

"It is urgent to bring a definitive end to the crisis triggered by Laurent Gbagbo's refusal to recognise his defeat," President Nicolas Sarkozy's office said in a statement after Sarkozy met key ministers to discuss the crisis in Ivory Coast. (Reporting by Marc Angrand; editing by Andrew Dobbie)
