Where are Liberia's weapons going?
Monrovia, Liberia

The United Nations said on Wednesday nearly 1800 former combatants reported for demobilisation during the first week of its relaunched disarmament programme in Liberia, but fewer than half of them handed in a gun.

This revived fears that many of the weapons used in Liberias 14-year civil war are being hidden or have been spirited away across the border into neighbouring countries.

Officials of the UN Mission in Liberia (Unmil) told reporters that 1789 former combatants from the Liberians United for Reconciliation and Democracy (Lurd) and Movement for Democracy for Liberia (Model) rebel movements have registered for disarmament between April 15 and 20 at the two cantonment sites opened so far.

However, only 782 weapons have been handed in, they added.
