The U.S. Embassy in Monrovia advises U.S. citizens resident and visiting Liberia to avoid political rallies scheduled to take place in Monrovia on November 11 and 12. Specifically, these rallies are planned to take place in Sinkor and other parts of greater Monrovia. Recent political unrest in Nimba County may lead to reprisal or retaliatory clashes between rival political parties during these planned political events. The U.S. Embassy reminds all U.S. citizens in Liberia to avoid crowds and maintain a heightened state of vigilance during the election runoff period.
Actions to Take:
- Do not participate in political rallies scheduled to take place on November 11 and 12.
- Avoid large crowds.
- Be aware of your surroundings.
- Monitor local media for updates.
- Exercise caution if unexpectedly in the vicinity of large gatherings.
- Keep a low profile.
