Liberia: January 13, 2004


UN special envoy Jacques Klein claimed that Liberia is growing more secure and stable each day, while its people appear to be committed to putting their long civil war behind them.

A Ukrainian An-124 jumbo transport plane carrying four Mi-8 helicopters and 21 personnel from the 56th Detached Helicopter Squadron arrived outside the Liberian capital of Monrovia. Two days earlier, another 21 personnel arrived with two Mi-24 helicopters. 

The day before, United Nations police officers began a two-week intensive course to retrain 400 Liberian policemen. However, only about 100 of the authorized 1,115 UN police officers have reached Liberia so far. - Adam Geibel
