War in Liberia

In 1989 a coup was attempted by a Liberian social group to overthrow the government and started the first Liberian civil war. As of 1990 Liberia was completely consumed by civil war with hundreds of casualties across the country, leaving Monrovia as a war-zone. In 2003 the war ended with the government officials tortured and then executed, today Liberia has a new government and order but many people are against the current state of the control of the country.
