My friend Myles Estey is currently working out of Liberia as an independent journalist. In addition to his other work, he's running a blog with news and dispatches from one of Africa's more troubled countries.

Here's what Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada has to say about Liberia:

"...the security situation in Liberia remains unpredictable. Mass movement of people aggravates the already poor economic conditions, especially in Monrovia and in other cities, where the presence of refugees is putting a strain on food and shelter resources. Looting and robbery, often at gunpoint, is being reported throughout the country. Fighting and demonstrations can occur anywhere at any time."
