Appeal judges at the International Criminal Court (ICC) have rejected request for the temporary release of Ivory Coast's former President, Laurent Gbagbo, on health grounds.

Mr Gbagbo, 70, is accused of plunging Ivory Coast into civil war, rather than relinquishing power after losing a presidential run-off vote in 2010. 
His trial has been scheduled to start in November, 2015.
