ABIDJAN, Dec 5 (Reuters) - Ivory Coast's military will re-open land, air and sea borders from Monday after they were shut during a tense wait for election results.

"The land borders, the airports, the runways and the ports are once again open to the circulation of people and goods," said military spokesman Colonel Babri Gohourou, adding that this would be effective from 6am (0600 GMT) Monday. (Reporting by Loucoumane Coulibaly; Writing by Tim Cocks)
