Abidjan - Ivory Coast's former first lady Simone Gbagbo who has been in detention in Abidjan since her husband's arrest on April 11, has been moved to the north of the country, said a minister on Saturday.

She was "moved early yesterday to Odienne and placed under house arrest", said Justice Minister Jeannot Ahoussou Kouadio, referring to a town in the northwest of the country.

The former first lady had been held at Abidjan's Golf Hotel where Alassane Ouattara, the country's new president, has been based since November.

Gbagbo and his wife were arrested by forces loyal to Ouattara, ending almost five months of a bitter stalemate sparked by the strongman's refusal to give up power despite Ouattara being internationally recognised as the winner of the November 28 elections.
