ABIDJAN - Ivory Coast resumed cocoa bean exports on Sunday more than three months after they were halted by the country's violent political crisis, a Reuters witness said.

A Reuters reporter saw workers loading beans onto a ship owned by Bollore Africa Logistics.

"We have 1,796 tonnes and there's another boat coming at a later date to load 9,000 tonnes," said Kwame Kwassi, a Bollore official.
