"... who served in the former regime of President Samuel Doe assassinated in 1990 after Mr Taylor launched an insurgency. The rebels gathered many of the forces that fought Mr Taylor during the country's brutal civil war from 1989 to 1997. Rebels claim to be active in northern Liberia, and the government has sent military reinforcements there to deal with them. But the situation is also confused by a variety of pro-Liberian government militias in the region, some of which are reported to have clashed among themselves."

Is that the case, Mr Taylor?
