Laurent Gbagbo freed: ICC releases former Ivory Coast president

Judges at the International Criminal Court in The Hague have ordered the conditional release of Ivory Coast's ex-president Laurent Gbagbo and his co-defendant Charles Blé Goudé. It comes more than a fortnight after they were acquitted of involvement in deadly violence that erupted after the 2010 presidential election in Ivory Coast. Judges have now instructed court officials to identify a country willing to accept the two men. Gbagbo has been in custody at the court since November 2011.
