By Teppei Kasai and Antoni Slodkowski TOKYO (Reuters) - When Haruna Yukawa was captured in Syria earlier this month, a video apparently released by his captors showed them pressing the Japanese man to answer questions friends say he had struggled with for years: Who are you? Why are you here?     In fact, Yukawa, 42, had first traveled to Aleppo four months earlier on what amounted to a hardship course in self-discovery, according to people who know him and his account. Changes in Yukawa's life in suburban Tokyo had been fast and disorienting. Over the past decade, he had lost his wife to lung cancer, lost a business and his house to bankruptcy and been forced to live in a public park for almost a month, according to Yukawa's father and an online journal he maintained.

By Ange Aboa ABIDJAN (Reuters) - International cocoa exporters in Ivory Coast are restricting staff movements due to the worsening Ebola outbreak on the top grower's western borders, risking leaving traders and exporters without accurate output forecasts for the upcoming season. Ivory Coast produced nearly 1.45 million tonnes of cocoa last season, according to International Cocoa Organization estimates, almost 37 percent of world supply. The epidemic in West Africa - the worst since the disease was first discovered in 1976 - has killed at least 1,427 people since it was first identified in March in Guinea, Ivory Coast's northwestern neighbor. It has since crossed into Sierra Leone and Liberia, which is separated from some of Ivory Coast's most productive growing regions by the Cavally River.
