12/06/2003 - The situation in the Liberian capital, Monrovia, is critical, even if President Charles Taylor and the LURD rebels have agreed a cease-fire, as was reported by the BBC. About 1,700 people from the neighbourhood have fled to the SOS Children's Village where children from SOS Children's Village Juah Town and from a private orphanage are also being accommodated.
