Security Council requests study into role of UN peacekeeping mission in resolving conflict in Liberia

The UN Mission in Liberia closed last month after nearly 15 years during which the country was at civil war for 14 years.

Earlier this year President George Weah succeeded Ellen Johnson Sirleaf in what is described as the first peaceful transfer of power between democratically elected leaders in 71 years.

Sri Lanka is one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a journalist. Tamil journalists are particularly at threat, with at least 41 media workers known to have been killed by the Sri Lankan state or its paramilitaries during and after the armed conflict.
