Kenyan Prime Minister Raila Odinga has hinted at possible direct talks between Cote d'Ivoire's two rival presidents to end a violent post-election power struggle. Odinga is in Abidjan as part of continued efforts to mediate the country's crisis.

Odinga spoke at the presidential palace, where incumbent Laurent Gbagbo is still clinging to power after a disputed November 28th election, which he is widely recognized to have lost. Odinga said he had useful discussions with Gbagbo and they had proposed meetings to take place beginning Tuesday. But he said there would be certain conditions to be fulfilled. He added that he was on his way to make the same proposal to Opposition presidential claimant Alassane Ouattara.
