Ivory Coast’s ousted dictator, Laurent Gbagbo, was captured on Monday along with his wife and top advisers after French, UN and rebel forces loyal to new President Alassane Ouattara stormed his fortified residence in Abidjan. Cameras were rolling, and captured this dramatic footage of Gbagbo’s capture:

Gbagbo, who lost an internationally certified election to Ouattara last November but refused to step down, is now being held in the luxurious Golf Hotel in Abidjan. Youssoufou Bamba, the Ivorian ambassador to the UN, says the former leader will be “brought to justice for the crimes he has committed.”
