    Fighting has resumed in Cote d'Ivoire as Laurent Gbagbo remains steadfast in his refusal to give up power.

    Al Jazeera has been getting conflicting reports about the sequence of events.

    Gbagbo has been hiding in the suburb of Cocody, in a bunker, for over 24 hours.

    Forces loyal to rival Alassane Ouattara have stormed the building.

    But while there are reports he has been seized, that cannot be confirmed.

    Gbagbo has denied he is ready to surrender.

    But he has offered a ceasefire with Ouattara.

    Al Jazeera's Haru Mutasa, reporting from Bassam, near Abidjan, has more details.
