UN troops provide security at the Golf Hotel which Alassane Ouattara uses as his headquarters because Laurent Gbagbo is still occupying the presidential palace in the city of Abidjan, Ivory Coast, Friday, Dec. 10, 2010. The United States warned Laurent Gbagbo that he faces punitive sanctions if he continues to refuse to step down following a disputed election that the United Nations says were won by his opponent. The hotel has turned into a fortress, protected by sandbags, coils of barbed wire and U.N. armored personnel carriers amid rumors the military under Gbagbo's control was planning an assault.
