A man has been arrested in London on suspicion of war crimes during the Liberian civil wars.
The 45-year-old man is accused of offences relating to the country’s first and second civil wars between 1989 and 2003, the Met Police said.
Officers from the Met’s War Crimes Team detained the man yesterday as they search an address in south-east London.
About 250,000 people died during the two civil wars in Liberia, from 1989-1996 and 1999-2003.
The country’s former president Charles Taylor was later jailed in the UK for committing war crimes in neighbouring Sierra Leone. END
