Liberia lifts state of emergency
MONROVIA, Liberia -- President Charles Taylor lifted the state of emergency he imposed eight months ago, declaring Saturday that the rebel insurrection against his government had been all but crushed.
Taylor made the announcement in a nationally broadcast speech in which he also ended a ban on political rallies, imposed earlier this year as the 2003 presidential elections drew near.
The Liberian leader cited recent successes by government troops, including the retaking of the strategic northwest town of Bopolu on Wednesday.
"All areas previously occupied by the rebels have been liberated," Taylor said.
