Ivory Coast's parliament speaker Guillaume Soro arrives at the Presidential Palace in Abidjan on August 8, 2012, to attend a ceremony dedicated to the release of a report of the National Commission of inquiry investigating the post-electoral violence of 2011. Gbagbo refused to concede defeat following 2010 presidential polls pitting him against arch foe Ouattara but was eventually captured by forces loyal to the opposition candidate backed by foreign troops. The five-month conflict left at least 3,000 people dead, according to the UN, and re-opened old wounds in a country that had already been deeply divided by years of civil conflict under Gbagbo's decade-long tenure.
