ABIDJAN - Forces loyal to Ivory Coast presidential claimant Alassane Ouattara seized two towns in the heart of the western cocoa belt overnight Monday, in an offensive that may soon enable them to control a major port.

Witnesses and fighters from both sides said on Tuesday the former rebels, who have controlled northern Ivory Coast since its last war in 2002-3, had seized Daloa from incumbent leader Laurent Gbagbo's troops.

They also took Duekoue, which opens up a direct route to the major exporting port of San Pedro.
