Fighting near SOS Children's Village Monrovia: refugees continue to stream in

26/06/2003 - The situation in Liberia's capital Monrovia has worsened dramatically. After the failure of the cease-fire between president Charles Taylor and the LURD rebels, there is now also fighting in the city-centre, as well as near to the SOS Children's Village. More than 5000 have already fled to the SOS Children's Village, and the stream of refugees shows no sign of abating.
