Loj says reports of Liberians participating in Guinea killings not proven

This is a quote from Ellen Margrethe Loj, the head of the UN peacekeeping mission in Liberia, speaking about reports of Liberians participating in the killing of protesters in Conakry last month:

“None of those reports have been substantiated to this day. We are of course keeping a very, very close eye on what is happening and up until now, we can only notice ordinary trading and traffic,” Loj said.

American with UNMIL dies, suspected of abuse

Reuters has a story about an American peacekeeper in Liberia (by which I think they mean military observer or staff officer) who died.  It appears to have been a suicide.  The guy was under investigation for sexual exploitation and abuse of minors.  An anonymous Liberian government official is quoted saying he was “involved in sex trade over the last year.”
