Liberia: December 19, 2001


 For the second time this year, LURD rebels (75 of them) moved out of Guinea and attacked the north Liberian town of Zorzor. The small garrison fought for a while and then fled. Rebels and troops continue to fight over control of  Kolahun, 310 kilometers north of Zurzor.  Most of the fighting in this border war is between small groups of troops, often no more than a few dozen, rarely more than a few hundred on a side.
