Ex-warlord warns of 'witch hunt' (Liberia)





Former Liberian warlord Prince Johnson has warned against a witch hunt by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

Prince Johnson, now an elected senator, said he had seen a confidential report recommending several war crime indictments, including one for him.

The man whose forces killed and mutilated the body of former President Samuel Doe vowed to resist any effort to arrest him.

The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Liberia was set up following the end of the country's civil war in 2003.

Around a quarter of a million people died during the conflict that lasted 14 years.
