US says talk of anti-Gbagbo plot ‘absurd’


The United States on Tuesday denied as "absurd" allegations that it had sent mercenaries to the Ivory Coast to oust strongman Laurent Gbagbo, as tensions mounted in the presidential standoff.

"We continue to call on President Gbagbo to respect the will of the Ivorian people and to step down and let President-elect (Alassane) Ouattara assume the reins of power there," State Department spokesman Mark Toner said.

"But to suggest that he has some nefarious plot is ridiculous," he told AFP.

Fools. "President Gbagbo" is not the President any longer. I predict somebody will kill this idiot. BY calling him "President" Gbagbo, the American government colludes.
