The African Union (AU) on Thursday lifted the sanctions imposed on Cote d'Ivoire following the West African country's disputed presidential run-off held on Nov. 28.

The 53-member pan-African bloc imposed sanction on Cote d'Ivoire on Dec. 9 to press then incumbent president Laurent Gbagbo to hand over power to Alassane Ouattara, who is internationally recognized as the winner of the election.

Gbagbo was captured on April 11 by the Republican Forces backing Ouattara after a week or so resistance in a bunker at his residence.
