Confusion Reigns in Liberia Around 'Missing' Billions

There is growing controversy over claims that banknotes worth billions of Liberian dollars have gone missing after being brought into the country. The New Democrat reports that the "cumulative position" of Liberian authorities now is that they have not reached that conclusion, and in another report says President Weah has asked the American FBI to investigate. Former President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has reportedly protested at being dragged into the controversy.
