The UN Security Council on Thursday unanimously backed ECOWAS efforts to force Gambia's leader Yahya Jammeh to hand over power as the West African bloc amassed a military force ready to intervene.

A resolution drafted by Senegal won the support of all 15 council members including Russia, which stressed that the measure did not formally authorize military action in The Gambia.
