A small plane crashed in western Ivory Coast on Monday, killing four people on board - an Ivorian and three white foreigners , a hospital source and a local cocoa trader in the area told Reuters.

A senior official at a hospital in Daloa, a western town in the cocoa belt where the crash took place, said he had received four bodies after the crash. One was Ivorian and three were white foreigners but they had not been identified, he said.

"We received the bodies around 5 p.m. (1700 GMT), we received the bodies of three people who had been killed in this plane crash. A survivor who was brought to us later died," he said.

Bernard Kope, a cocoa trader at Daloa, said he knew one of those killed in the plane, which he said had been hired by a logging company operating in the area.

Kope said the plane crashed during takeoff for Abidjan.
