Brussels - The European Union on Monday decided to slap visa bans on 19 Ivorians, including Laurent Gbagbo and his powerful wife Simone.

The measures will take 24 to 48 hours before coming into force, with a decision to freeze assets for the 19 to be taken separately, diplomatic sources said.

The EU has slapped similar measures in the past against such African leaders as Zimbabwe's Robert Mugabe and Dadis Camara of Guinea.

Following is the list obtained by AFP of people facing "targeted measures" by the 27-nation bloc:

Laurent Gbagbo, declared president, unrecognised by UN

Simone Gbagbo, first lady

Kadet Bertin, Gbagbo's security adviser

Desire Tagro, lately interior minister, now Secretary General of the Presidency

Yao N'Dre, president of the Constitutional Council

Pascal Affi N'Guessan, former prime minister, now Gbagbo spokesperson

Denis Maho Glofiei, head of FLGO Patriotic Movement

Pasteur Gammi, head of MILOCI Patriotic Movement

Oulai Delefosse, head of UPRAGO Patriotic Movement

Nadiana Bamba, director, Le Temps newspaper, Gbagbo's second wife under tribal customs
