ABIDJAN, April 6
ABIDJAN, April 6 (Reuters) - Forces loyal to Ivory Coast presidential claimant Alassane Ouattara, who stormed the residence of Laurent Gbagbo on Wednesday, have been ordered not to kill him, a spokesman for Ouattara told Reuters.
"It has never been nor is it the intention of anyone in the Ouattara camp to assassinate former president Gbagbo," said Patrick Achi, a spokesman for Ouattara's government.
"Alassane Ouattara has given formal instructions that Gbagbo is to be kept alive because we want to bring him to justice," he said.
