Liberian Civil War 1996-1997

[ 1996 - 1997 ]

A January 1996 peace plan brokered by several African states was ineffectual, and in April 1996 ferocious fighting again erupted in Monrovia among rebels and government troops and West African peacekeeping forces. Charles Taylor then made a tenuous alliance with the republic of Nigeria, and on July 19, 1997, with Nigerian help, free elections were held in Liberia. Taylor won a land-slide victory, and hostilities ended.
