The UN's secretary-general has warned there is a "real risk" of a return to civil war in Ivory Coast after the disputed presidential election.

联合国秘书长警告道,象牙海岸有争议的总统选举对于内战爆发具有“真正的危险性”。

The UN says pro-Gbagbo forces are harassing its peacekeepers
Ban Ki-moon said the incumbent2, Laurent Gbagbo, was illegally trying to expel(驱逐,开除) the UN's peacekeeping force after it recognised Alassane Ouattara as victor.

Earlier, an ally of Mr Gbagbo warned the peacekeepers that they could be treated as rebels if they did not go.

And in his first TV address since the poll Mr Gbagbo stressed his legitimacy3(合法,合理) .

He also offered to let a panel representing international powers examine the results of the election.

Mr Gbagbo said Mr Ouattara could leave the Golf Hotel in Abidjan, where he has set up his headquarters, protected by the UN.

The army meanwhile announced the lifting of a nightly curfew(宵禁) , so families could "enjoy the end of year holidays and the New Year".

'Mercenaries'

In a speech to the UN General Assembly on Tuesday, Mr Ban said he was worried about the 10,000-strong mission in Ivory Coast (Unoci).

Forces loyal to Mr Gbagbo were obstructing4 Unoci operations, and had blockaded the 800 peacekeepers protecting Mr Ouattara, he warned.

"I am concerned that this disruption of life-support supplies for the mission and the Golf Hotel will put our peacekeepers in a critical situation in the coming days," he said.

"I therefore strongly appeal to member states who are in a position to do so to prepare to support the mission.

"Facing this direct and unacceptable challenge to the legitimacy of the United Nations, the world community cannot stand by," he added.

The BBC's John James in Abidjan says roads leading to the lagoon5(泻湖,环礁湖) -side hotel have been blocked and no supplies have been received for days.

Mr Ban said that any attempt to "starve the United Nations mission into submission6" would not be tolerated, and warned those who perpetrated such acts would be held accountable under international law.

He also revealed Unoci had confirmed "mercenaries(雇佣兵) , including freelance former combatants from Liberia, have been recruited to target certain groups in the population", and that an arms embargo7 was being broken.

The secretary-general added that he had sent a request from Mr Ouattara to the General Assembly's credentials8 committee(资格审查委员会) to recognise his choice for permanent representative and rescind9(解雇,废除) the credentials of Mr Gbagbo's envoy10, Alcide Djedje, who he has appointed foreign minister.
