According to L'Intelligent d'Abidjan [1] and  Diaby Mohamed [2], a blogger who visited l’ Hôtel du Golfe where Ouattara holds  his HQ, a  skirmish occured between Gbagbo's Security and Defense Forces (FDS) and Ouattara's  New Forces (FN).  This caused dissemination of many rumors [3] but @ourmaninafrica [4] reports that calm has returned [5], except for roadblocks by Gbagbo's forces, and the presence of UNOCI forces.
