Former Ivory Coast president Laurent Gbagbo has today been charged with murder, rape, persecution and inhuman acts by the International Criminal Court.
The crimes were allegedly committed as his backers fought to keep him in power last year.
Gbagbo is the first former head of state taken into custody by the court in The Hague, Netherlands, since it was established in 2002.
