The Liberian authorities have charged former faction leader Prince Johnson with treason. According to the BBC, President Charles Taylor said Liberia would seek his extradition from Nigeria to stand trial. Prince Johnson, whose troops captured and killed the former Liberian president, Samuel Doe, in 1990 has been in exile in Nigeria for the last six years. The BBC said the Liberian authorities were also seeking the extradition of several other Liberians accused of treason following violence in Monrovia in September. They include exiled faction leaders Roosevelt Johnson and Alhaji Kromah.
